Fuse Medical, Inc. | January 15, 2021

Fuse Medical, Inc. (OTCPINK: FZMD) ("Fuse" or the "Organization") an arising manufacturer and distributor of imaginative medical gadgets for the orthopedic and spine commercial center, reported today a concurrence with CarePICS, the most recent asset expansion to Fuse's extensive portfolio and biologics item contributions for wound consideration.

CarePICS is a HIPAA consistent, application based telehealth stage planned explicitly to perform and follow reimbursable occasions around wound consideration. CarePICS assists with encouraging claim to fame counsels between doctors, telehealth visits with patients, and clinical reports with pictures, and to computerize reimbursable medical inventory requesting. CarePICS highlights an injury estimation apparatus which naturally computes surface zone, length and width, without contacting the patient.

“Considering the challenges providers are facing to maintain safe patient consults and exams, we feel that telemedicine is here to stay. CarePICS is a resource that can help doctors overcome those safety issues and provide reimbursement intelligence. We are excited to be a part of the CarePICS Pathways Program,” commented Christopher C. Reeg, Chief Executive Officer of Fuse. “In today’s uncertain climate surrounding the pandemic, the availability of this technology will present providers with advanced options for treatment of their patients requiring wound care products and services.”

Medtronic receives FDA clearance for next-generation UNiD™ Spine Analyzer with degenerative spine surgery predictive model

Medtronic | July 15, 2022

Medtronic plc a global leader in healthcare technology, announced it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance for its UNiD™ Spine Analyzer v4.0 planning platform, which includes a new Degen Algorithm for degenerative spine procedures. The algorithm leverages machine learning to help surgeons plan and personalize procedures for patients undergoing lower lumbar spine surgery and predicts spinal compensation mechanisms six months after the operation. This new update also includes enhancements to the pediatric and adult deformity algorithms predicting compensatory changes to the spine. Medtronic is the first and only company to have FDA cleared predictive models for spine surgery. The release comes with a new UNiD™ Hub patient-centric platform that enables surgeons to track patients throughout the perioperative care pathway and assess surgical results through long-term radiographic and patient-reported outcomes data collection. "Patient by patient, our UNiD™ Lab engineers have learned from more than 10,000 spine surgery cases to deliver greater insights to surgeons that lead to better patient alignment. It is truly exciting to share that we have expanded our UNiD™ ASI technology to include hardware and software solutions dedicated to helping spine surgeons treat degenerative spinal pathologies, where the majority of spine surgery is performed." Dan Wolf, vice president and general manager, intelligent Data Solutions within the Cranial & Spinal Technology business, which is part of the Neuroscience Portfolio at Medtronic Degenerative spine disease is a common health condition and significant cause of disability for many patients worldwide1. The UNiD™ ASI Degen Algorithm helps surgeons achieve spinal alignment by more accurately planning procedures and predicting spinal alignment after six months. Surgical planning, using the UNiD Spine Analyzer, is especially important for degenerative spine procedures, as studies suggest nearly a third of these degenerative patients have a hidden deformity2. A study suggests that when sagittal alignment is not achieved during these procedures, patients are at 10 times greater risk of experiencing degeneration of discs above or below the level where the operation was performed3 Moreover a study shows that 62% of patients remained sagittally malaligned after their procedure,4 which may lead to revision surgery3,5. "Alignment matters for all spinal surgery – both short construct degen and long construct deformity cases," said Dr. Christopher Kleck, an orthopedic spine surgeon at the University of Colorado. "Planning all of these cases with my UNiD Lab engineer ensures that my surgical plan is backed by artificial intelligence and clinically important predictive models to set my patients up for long-term success." This new technology further demonstrates Medtronic's commitment to offering solutions for all spinal pathologies, including deformity and degenerative conditions. Over time, UNiD ASI technology will continue to evolve as more case data is added and predictive algorithms are further refined to help make spine surgery more predictable for surgeons and patients alike. About UNiD ASI Platform The UNiD ASI platform uses a database of more than 10,000 surgical cases to power algorithms that visualize multiple permutations, allowing surgeons to better understand their patient's alignment before surgery, customize a surgical plan and use patient-specific rods to help ensure the goals of the surgery are achieved. AI helps visualize mechanisms above and below the spine that will most likely occur based on the surgical plan in order to enhance clinical and surgical workflow and increase reproducibility. About Medtronic Bold thinking. Bolder actions. We are Medtronic. Medtronic plc, headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, is the leading global healthcare technology company that boldly attacks the most challenging health problems facing humanity by searching out and finding solutions.
