TiRobot Recon Total Knee Arthroplasty Robot Passed Innovation Review
In November 2020, Orthopaedic Surgery Navigation and Positioning System (model: TiRobot Recon), a robot for total knee arthroplasty developed independently by TINAVI, has passed the special review of innovative medical device and entered the stage of review and approval for innovative medical device registration. The system can provide support for surgeons in total knee arthroplasty, assist them to complete the design of individualized joint replacement surgery based on the anatomical and kinematic data of the patient, and complete osteotomy positioning for the location of knee prosthesis implantation.
With the scheme of robot-guided osteotomy, TiRobot Recon can complete positioning-based osteotomy without pulpotomy, pin inserting and tool replacement, greatly improving the accuracy of osteotomy, reducing the surgical trauma and increasing the surgical efficiency. No similar product is currently available on the market in China.
TINAVI Creates Doctor Training Center with Johnson & Johnson
In 2020, TINAVI worked with Johnson & Johnson in three sessions of robot surgery skills training program.
On October 31, 2020, a strategic cooperation plan was signed by TINAVI, Johnson & Johnson and Renji Hospital of Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine for the opening of the robot-assisted spinal surgery skills training program and the successful inauguration ceremony of “Robot-assisted Spinal Surgery Clinical Technology Application Center” at Showsite Center, strengthening the advantages and surgical skills of operations performed in eastern China with the TiRobot Orthopaedic Robot System.
On December 13 of the same year, TINAVI and Johnson & Johnson worked with Qilu Hospital of Shandong University in establishing the Robot-assisted Spinal Surgery Training Center and provided the “Preliminary and Advanced Robot-assisted Spinal Surgery Skills Training Program”, making the cutting-edge technology and application experience of spinal surgery assisted by the TiRobot® Orthopaedic Robot System more widely accessible to spinal surgeons throughout the province and even the whole country to benefit more patients with spinal injuries.
On January 6, 2021, the orthopaedic surgical robot project between TINAVI and Johnson & Johnson kicked off in Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine in Zhuhai, marking that the TiRobot® Orthopaedic Robot System has “settled” in Zhuhai and had been put into clinical application as a typical representative of the new technological revolution in the medical field, with greater strategic importance, more growth potential and motivation.
