EOSedge will strengthen the portfolio of the Company, with the first-generation EOS® system continuing to be part of the EOS imaging offering. Both EOSedge and the first-generation EOS system are designed to work seamlessly with the Advanced Orthopedic Solutions, which include 3DServices, EOSapps 3D surgical planning for spine, hip and knee as well as EOSlink™, which delivers the EOS surgical plan into the operating room to be used with advanced surgical technologies.
Mike Lobinsky, Chief Executive Officer of EOS imaging, commented: “The FDA’s 510(k) approval for EOSedge is a major milestone in the global marketing of this new system. After the launch in Europe, Canada and Australia, we are now ready to address the American market and offer the latest major innovation in orthopedic imaging to clinicians and patients in these key markets.”
