London, September 28, 2016 — Brainlab, a global leader in medical technology, announced today that it has solidified its position as the dominant force in orthopedic surgical planning, adding 20 new TraumaCad® sites in the United Kingdom in the past 12 months. With consistent annual sales growth in the U.K. of approximately 10 percent, TraumaCad is now available in nearly 70 percent of hospitals in the U.K.
“Before we started using TraumaCad, in January 2016, my colleagues and I were well aware of its excellent reputation amongst our colleagues elsewhere,” said Simon Royston, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, NHS Trust. “We have found it very intuitive to use and it has been a step-up in the ease and quality of our pre-operative planning. The training and technical support from Brainlab has been superb, all the way from pre-installation to the present.”
Installed at over 2,000 locations worldwide, TraumaCad surgical planning by Brainlab, provides orthopedic surgeons with a comprehensive digital solution for performing pre-operative planning and simulations. The procedure-oriented application includes an extensive digital template library and offers a full set of wizards and measurement tools. Using digital images, surgeons can perform measurements, assess prostheses, simulate osteotomies, and visualize fracture reductions.
“Our explosive growth in TraumaCad sales is not only a great validation of the quality and reputation of our technology, but it is also an important recognition of the growing demand for hospitals and clinics to stay ahead of the curve in orthopedic treatments,” said Ian Wilson, Sales Manager, on behalf of Brainlab. “In most cases, the UK hospitals and clinics that have purchased TraumaCad in the past year or two have replaced other digital templating solutions.”
