French MedTech companies eCential Robotics and Amplitude Surgical announce long-term partnership and join their forces to enhance knee surgery robotics

Gières (Grenoble), France, and Valence, France, April, 26 2022, 6pm CEST – eCential Robotics, a French growth company that designs, manufactures, and markets the first unified 2D/3D robotic imaging and surgical navigation system for bone surgery indications, and Amplitude Surgical (ISIN: FR0012789667, Ticker: AMPLI, eligible for PEA-PME plans), leading French player on the surgical technology market for lower limb orthopedics, today announced their long-term partnership to develop a joint robotic solution for knee surgery.

Combine the strengths of two partners, both experts in their respective field
eCential Robotics and Amplitude Surgical have concluded an agreement to bring together their technologies for knee robotic surgeries. Based on product technical excellence and a shared long-term view, this partnership brings the best of both partners:

  • Surgical robotics with eCential Robotics’ platform. As the only available solution that is fully unified in one device, the eCential Robotics platform unifies in its core design intraoperative 2D/3D imaging, navigation, and robotics. The eCential Robotics platform is an open solution, catering to different surgeons’ preferences and has a proven collaboration track record with multiple industry partners in spine surgery,
  • Navigation and knee surgery with Amplitude Surgical. With more than 15 years’ experience in knee navigated surgery, thanks to its proprietary system Amplivision, and more than 20 years clinical follow up on Total Knee Arthroplasty, Amplitude Surgical will bring its expertise for an optimized surgical flow based on the latest alignment techniques.
