The OR Company Acquires Rights to Baltimore-Based Start-Up Technology
Date:12/3/2013

COLUMBIA, Md., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Seguro Surgical, Inc. ("Seguro") announced today that the rights to its novel surgical device, Lap Pak, have been acquired by The OR Company of Tacoma, WA.  Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Seguro, based in Columbia, MD, licensed the Lap Pak technology from Johns Hopkins University in 2009 and further developed the device with support from a grant from the Maryland Technology Development Corporation ("TEDCO").

Lap Pak is designed to replace the use of cotton towels to pack and secure the bowels during major open abdominal surgeries.  Lap Pak is designed to reduce post-operative adhesions caused by the use of cotton towels, which cost the healthcare system $3 billion annually.   The technology also saves significant OR time - approximately $1,000 savings per procedure. 

Tony Deasey, CEO of Seguro, commented, "The success of Lap Pak to date has been a testament to the power of collaboration between innovative Maryland organizations like Johns Hopkins and TEDCO.  With The OR Company's worldwide distribution capabilities, Lap Pak can now improve patient safety on a global scale."
