Blue Belt Technologies has inked an agreement to support DePuy Synthes' SIGMA HP partial knee system with Blue Belt's Navio robotic surgical system. This is the sixth implant system supported on Navio's open platform software, the Minneapolis devicemaker said.
The Navio system offers CT-free navigation software and a hand-held computer-controlled bone shaping tool, improving the accuracy of implant placement while protecting soft tissue, according to Blue Belt.
