Blue Belt Technologies Announces First United Kingdom-Based NavioPFS Unicondylar Knee Replacement Surgery
Date:11/7/2012

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Belt Technologies, Inc. announced the first NavioPFS™ unicondylar knee replacement (UKR) procedure performed in the United Kingdom, completed on October 26, 2012 by Mr. Alberto Gregori at Hairmyres Hospital in Scotland. The NavioPFS surgical system represents a new generation of smart instrumentation with robotic control. Blue Belt Technologies had completed its first surgery in Pellenberg, Belgium in July, 2012 and continues commercial expansion across Europe and now the UK.

"The system worked flawlessly and delivered an accurate placement and alignment of the prosthesis, one of our prime goals in knee replacement surgery," said Mr. Gregori, of Hairmyres Hospital.

Mr. Gregori continued, "We have successfully used navigation to optimally implant total knee prostheses for some 11 years but with the NavioPFS have now gone one step further and integrated bone preparation along with planning, and alignment into one seamless process in the operating theatre."

In treatment of the patient presenting with medial arthritis, the NavioPFS system provided CT-free intraoperative registration and planning, coupled with the proprietary Navio™ handpiece, a precision execution tool allowing accurate bone sculpting.

Commenting on the procedure, Eric B. Timko, President and CEO of Blue Belt Technologies, said, "We couldn't be happier with the initial clinical results of the NavioPFS system. With every new surgery, NavioPFS is establishing a consistent pattern of strong initial clinical outcomes with highly precise implant placement. We are excited to welcome Mr. Gregori to the team of Navio users, and are looking forward to further expanding throughout the United Kingdom as well as Europe."
