Synaptive Medical Inc. announced the approval from Health Canada to market its BrightMatter Guide, a technology for health care providers that includes informatics, imaging, surgical planning, navigation and advanced optics.
Synaptive also received approval from Health Canada for its ImageDrive Pro earlier this year. ImageDrive is a health care informatics platform that further assists with the interoperability of Synaptive’s systems and is designed to provide transformative data insights. In May, Synaptive received US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for ImageDrive Pro.
The FDA cleared the company’s BrightMatter Guide in April 2015. Recent customers have included Inova Fairfax, Kaleida Health in Buffalo, Houston Methodist, Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, the University of Michigan, and Henry Ford Health System in Detroit. Synaptive had its first international installation at The Aga Khan University Hospital in Pakistan earlier this year.
Synaptive Medical, a Toronto based company, develops and supports surgical technologies and therapies. Its BrightMatter Guide provides advanced tools and information to allow surgeons to focus on patient outcomes.
