KALAMAZOO, Mich., May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Stryker’s Communications business unit and Acuitec announced today that they have signed an agreement that will integrate both companies’ technologies within the operating room to provide customers with a comprehensive offering that combines in-room integration with desirable workflow solutions.

Stryker’s Infinity Control System allows staff within the OR to route video, control multiple devices and PCs, and teleconference.
