Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc. has won the FDA’s nod for its Rosa Partial Knee system for robotically assisted partial knee arthroscopy. The new system is the latest addition to the Rosa Robotics platform, which also includes the Rosa Knee system for total knee replacement and Rosa One for neurosurgical and spine procedures. The Rosa Partial Knee system is designed to be compatible with Zimmer’s Personal partial knee. It incorporates 2D to 3D X-Atlas imaging technology and real-time, intraoperative data collection on both soft tissue and bone anatomies to ensure accurate bone cuts and improve range of motion gap analysis.
Memic Innovative Surgery Ltd. secured a major cash infusion to bring its freshly FDA-authorized Hominis robotic-assisted surgical platform to market. Peregrine Ventures and Ceros led the $96 million series D financing round with participation from Ourcrowd and Accelmed.
Israeli med-tech startup Forsight Robotics Ltd. has closed a $10 million seed funding round led by Eclipse Ventures and joined by Mithril Capital.
