Visit Taiwan Excellence Pavilion Booth #1855
From March 8 to March 10, the four companies will showcase and demo their products at the Taiwan Excellence “Improving Lives, Together” pavilion located at Booth #1855:
1. BioGend – RevoCart®Cartilage Repair and Regeneration Technology
BioGend’s One-Step Autologous Cartilage Repair System, RevoCart®, is an innovative cartilage repair procedure and a milestone for knee cartilage surgery. As exercise gains more popularity and society continues to age, the number of people suffering from degenerative arthritis and sports-related joint injuries has been increasing. With a one-step minimally invasive procedure, this innovative technology has assisted many patients in successful autologous knee cartilage repair.
2. NanoRay – Revolux Hand Diagnostic Radiology Imaging System
The world’s first point-of-care low-dose benchtop hand radiography system, RevoluX, integrates NanoRay’s innovative Transmission X-Ray tube and an advanced flat-panel detector. The compact benchtop hand radiography system can be deployed in the general area without the need for radiation shielding, thus saving space and cost for healthcare facilities. RevoluX can provide fast, safe, and accurate analysis of the bone age growth curve of children. It can also be used in bone mineral density detection, rheumatoid joint disease, and additional early diagnosis research.
3. Taiwan Main Orthopaedics – Smart Surgical Glasses
Redefining the future of surgery, Taiwan Main Orthopaedics’ Caduceus smart glasses are the world’s first to combine mixed reality and high precision surgical navigation technologies, enabling surgeons to see through a patient’s body and visualize a 3D model of the anatomy of the patient’s organs. Caduceus is a surgical guidance system incorporated with core technologies to assist in positioning specific entry points and revealing necessary angles for fixing screws in spinal surgery. Surgeons can see the exact position of the needle insertion without taking their eyes off of the patient to look at any other instrumentation. For patients, it means smaller incisions during the procedure, resulting in quicker recovery times. Additionally, the Caduceus S augmented reality spine navigation system, which the smart glasses are a part of, recently received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration and is expected to be available in the US in the first quarter of 2023.
4. United Orthopedic – USTAR II Knee Hinge and Limb Salvage System
United Orthopedic’s United Segmental Total Articular Reconstruction System (USTAR II) is a limb salvage system designed for the extensive reconstruction of the hip and knee joint after revision or tumor removal surgery. USTAR II offers surgeons a simple solution for complex salvage cases through its innovative mechanisms and modular design. It offers a variety of choices in terms of proximal femoral components, segment lengths, and extension stems. It requires less resection, offers more preservation, and is safe and long lasting.
