“With developments such as Intracs ® em, we are steadily positioning ourselves as true innovators in this space,” states Wolfgang Ries, Founder and CEO of joimax ®. “And we further strengthen our leading role in endoscopic spinal surgery,” he adds.

Intracs ® em Electromagnetic Navigation System

Intracs ® em relies on electromagnetic tracking and is specifically designed for simple and safe access to any spinal target. For exceptional accuracy, the instruments are vector-guided directly at the tip; therefore, bending of needles or other pliant instruments will not affect the navigation’s precision. The new smart and user-friendly system can serve as a stand-alone device, or be completely integrated with the joimax ® Endoscopic Tower. It is the only system on the market which allows for simultaneous navigation of multiple instruments such as needles, guiding rods, reamers, and endoscopes; developed by joimax ®.

The full European product launch is scheduled for Q4 2018. The global launch, including the United States, will be rolled out in the beginning of 2019.

Trade Show Exhibitions and Demo Workshops

joimax ® will be exhibiting at EUROSPINE 2018 and NASS 2018.

EUROSPINE 2018: On September 20, joimax ® will present at a lunch symposium. In addition, members of the internationally acclaimed joimax ® faculty group will host daily Meet the Expert sessions at the joimax ® booth, No. 05A.

NASS 2018: On September 27, the company will be part of the After Hours Workshop presentation and hands-on cadaver lab. Plus, following a successful introduction at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) in New Orleans last March, joimax ® will showcase its combined 4K UHD resolution camera and LED light source system, Camsource ® LED, and the fully integrated documentation and command system, Vitegra ® Docu and Command.
