Warsaw, IN (PRWEB) August 08, 2016
OrthoPediatrics Corp. is pleased to announce it has finalized a license agreement with Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network for the EPIC Plate Physeal Tethering Technology, which expands the Company’s leading position in the guided growth marketplace. The EPIC Plate was designed in collaboration with the Network’s researchers from the Kids Research Institute at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in Sydney, Australia. This is the second product the Company has licensed as part of their on-going partnership. Sydney based Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon Professor David Little collaborated with the Company on the design of the system, saying “Guided growth has become a mainstay in deformity correction. The EPIC Plate is designed with an extremely low profile and allows access to areas where standard plates are challenging to use.”
David Bailey, OrthoPediatrics’ Executive Vice President, echoed his enthusiasm for the project, saying “We are excited to further expand our physeal tethering business. The EPIC Plate offers a smaller and lower profile physeal tethering option, allowing us to expand indications into foot and ankle, elbow and wrist procedures for pediatric patients.”
