As part of broadening its portfolio, orthopedic device maker Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc. is acquiring surgical robotics provider Medtech SA for about $132 million.
Montpelier, France-based Medtech Rosa’s robotic arm is used for minimally invasive brain and spine surgery. Rosa has six degrees of freedom, provides haptic feedback to surgeons, and uses laser measurements for touch-free registration or navigation in the skull.
In January, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Medtech’s spinal system, which had received a CE mark in 2014. The FDA previously approved Rosa for brain surgery in 2012.
