A handheld robotic option that enables accurate implant placement

US-headquartered Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. has announced a limited distribution agreement with THINK Surgical, Inc., also in the US, regarding its wireless, handheld, TMINI miniature robotic system for total knee arthroplasty.

The agreement will result in an exclusive offering, integrating Zimmer Biomet technology into a customised TMINI robotic solution. The TMINI system complements Zimmer Biomet's comprehensive, flagship ROSA Robotics portfolio with a handheld robotic option that enables accurate implant placement to a predetermined CT-based, three-dimensional surgical plan.

Zimmer Biomet anticipates introducing the customised TMINI System to select markets in the US in the second half of 2024.

Earlier this year, Zimmer Biomet expanded its flagship ROSA Robotics portfolio with ROSA Shoulder, the world's first robotic surgery system for shoulder replacement. The platform, which includes applications for total knee and total hip replacement, remains the company's core focus, while working with THINK Surgical to introduce a customised TMINI system that integrates Zimmer Biomet technology.
