LimaCorporate Reports the Successful Completion of the 1st Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Using the Smart Space Cubit Intraoperative Guidance System

April 1, 2021

LimaCorporate achieves an important landmark in the development of its digital platform designed to assist surgeons in delivering improved outcomes with an accessible and sustainable economic model, following the milestone-based acquisition of TechMah Medical LLC.

TechMah Medical LLC was founded by Dr. Mohamed Mahfouz, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Tennessee, in 2014.

On March 25, 2021 Shelden Martin, MD performed the first successful total shoulder arthroplasty in Scottsdale, AZ using the Smart SPACE 3D Virtual Planner and the Shoulder Cubit Guidance digital platform. Upon completion of the procedure Dr. Martin stated that, “I am very pleased that our first shoulder arthroplasty utilizing Smart SPACE Cubit Guidance went extremely well. I was impressed with the seamless and efficient integration of the instrumentation into my normal procedural workflow, resulting in minimal deviations from normal technique and no additional procedural time. Most importantly, the final component positioning precisely matched our patient-specific pre-operative surgical plan. I am very excited about the future promise of this unique technology.

Smart SPACE is LimaCorporate’s digital platform and features novel technology and a rich pipeline of landscape-changing applications. Smart SPACE is a new environment designed to further enable the surgeon and enhance the predictability of surgical outcomes providing peace-of-mind to the physician. In particular, the Shoulder Cubit Guidance is designed to deliver accurate anatomy and instrument tracking without the challenges and disruptions of optical surgical navigation. The Shoulder Cubit Guidance is the perfect complement to the Smart SPACE 3D Virtual Planner, which is powered by advanced AI algorithms developed by TechMah Medical, LLC. The Smart SPACE 3D Virtual Planner and Shoulder Cubit Guidance are innovative and fundamental cornerstones of the Smart SPACE ecosystem.

This pioneering digital platform is intended to allow surgeons to develop a complete pre-operative plan, through the Smart SPACE 3D Virtual Planner and execute the plan precisely using a combination of patient customized 3D Positioners and the Cubit Guidance System with its proprietary sensor technology. Surgeons will receive real time feedback regarding instrument and implant positioning, all while maintaining their desired OR and patient set up. The Smart SPACE Shoulder system is currently in Controlled Release within the United States and Europe and is scheduled for full commercial release in Q4 2021.

Luigi Ferrari, LimaCorporate CEO, stated: “The successful completion of the first Shoulder Cubit guided surgery is a significant milestone in Digital Transformation at LimaCorporate and signals the completion of the first phase of the Smart SPACE roadmap. I’m excited about the positive impact that this groundbreaking technology will have in the daily lives of our surgeons and their patients.”
