S.E.G-WAY™ Orthopaedics (SegWAY), a leader in solutions for minimally invasive orthopedic procedures has been acquired by Trice Medical.  SegWAY is best known for its Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release (ECTR), a device that supports minimally invasive carpal tunnel surgeries. Trice Medical addresses the growing need for accurate, cost-effective orthopedic diagnostic solutions with its mi-eye™, a fully disposable arthroscopy camera.

“The SegWAY acquisition transforms Trice Medical into the first company that offers both minimally invasive orthopedic diagnostic and surgical solutions,” said Jeffrey O’Donnell Sr., CEO of Trice Medical. “We’re looking forward to integrating the SegWAY offerings and building on our combined strengths. One of the areas we’re looking at is using our minimally invasive camera technology in the operating room as well.”

“We’re excited for SegWAY to join forces with Trice,” added Stuart Seymour, CEO & Founder of SegWAY. “In just over five years, growing at 30 to 40 percent year-on-year, we’ve created tremendous traction among orthopedic surgeons. Teaming with Trice Medical, which is advancing technologies that involve cameras and ultrasound, rounds out our offering for those doctors.”

Mark Foster, President and CCO of Trice Medical, commented, “The combined Trice Medical and SegWAY capabilities will benefit surgeons and medical facilities in an efficient, cost-beneficial way. We believe we can solve big problems with small cameras, small instruments and minimal anesthesia for patients.”

Note: More than 600,000 carpal tunnel surgeries are performed annually in the US, with about a quarter of them performed endoscopically. The SegWAY platform is also used in minimally invasive surgery for cubital tunnel syndrome, gastrocnemius equinus contracture and plantar fasciitis.
