JointPoint's clinical advancements in digitally navigated orthopedic procedures now cleared for use across Canada.

BELLEAIR BLUFFS, Fla., Dec. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- JointPoint, a digital medical technology pioneer delivering

navigation systems for orthopedic surgery, today announced the successful licensing of its ELITE and PRO Surgical Navigation Systems by Health Canada. This government-issued license enables JointPoint to immediately deploy its clinically validated, patent-protected product lines to hospitals and physicians across the country.

Orthopedic surgeon and experienced JointPoint procedure physician, William Barrett, MD, explained, "My office in Renton, Washington, is only a short distance from Vancouver, BC, and I know my colleagues in Canada will appreciate the advantages of this system. The orthopedic navigation package that JointPoint offers has made a tremendous difference for me and my patients here in the Northwest, and I am quite certain that Health Canada's license grant will open up significant new patient demand across the Canadian landscape."

Designed for ease of use and to provide a customized output for each individual patient, JointPoint's navigation system utilizes sophisticated software algorithms that analyze implant component positioning and bony anatomical landmarks to provide physicians with real-time, actionable data to further enhance patient care. JointPoint's patented technology obviates the need for pins, arrays, or other components that invade the sterile field.

"JointPoint has enjoyed tremendous commercial and clinical success with our digital software platforms in the United States, and the natural expansion of our commercial footprint was to launch into Canada," noted JointPoint President, Noah Wollowick. "Our aim is to help improve patient care globally, and over the next several months we will be investing in infrastructure and educational programs in order to meet our anticipated customer needs across Canada."

JointPoint's FDA-cleared solutions are in use and available across the United States. For more information, see the company's website at https://www.jointpoint.com.
