Safe Orthopaedics announces the 20,000th kit sold and the success of the evaluation phase of Sycamore
 

  • 11,500 surgeries performed in France
  • Success of the evaluation phase of the new vertebral compression fracture (VCF) treatment, Sycamore

Éragny-sur-Oise, Fleurieux-sur-l'Arbresle, November 25, 2021 at 5:45 pm CET - Safe Orthopaedics (FR0013467123 - ALSAF), a company specializing in the design, manufacture and marketing of ready-to-use technologies for back surgery, particularly safe for emergency-treated vertebral fractures, announces the
20,000th kit sold, and the success of the evaluation phase of Sycamore, the novel vertebral compression fracture (VCF) treatment.

Firstly, Safe Orthopaedics has successfully reached the significant mark of 20,000 instrument kits sold across the globe. With this achievement many patients have been successfully treated using Safe Orthopaedics' proprietary ready-to-use technology that delivers significant benefits to the hospital, the surgical team, and the patient.

On this topic, Nik Beyer, Chief Commercial Officer of Safe Orthopaedics says: “Despite significant market headwinds I'm delighted that through the hard work and determination of our direct sales teams, distribution partners and support teams we have continued to prove that there is a real, and growing, un-met need for our ready-to-use technology in the global spine market.”

Secondly, through close collaboration with surgeons in France and Germany, Safe Orthopaedics is coming to the end of a successful evaluation phase for its novel vertebral compression fracture (VCF) treatment, Sycamore. With the completion of this phase Sycamore is ready for launch early 2022 in select markets.

Nik Beyer comments: “Sycamore is an exciting product for our portfolio, a new concept to the market that promises to deliver significant growth through 2022 and beyond in a VCF market that continues to show year-on-year growth. Market trends showed us that the solutions available to surgeons to manage these hard-to-treat patients do not always achieve the best results, Sycamore is designed to meet those demands”.


Pierre Dumouchel, CEO & Chairman of Safe Group concludes: “It's with great pride that we make this announcement today. Our focus has always been on delivering the best possible outcome for patients and it's a privilege to have contributed to the optimal treatment of so many patients. To deliver this milestone in tough market conditions, during a pandemic, and follow-up with a major piece of product development in Sycamore is testament to the investment we have made in both our commercial and innovation business units and the close working partnerships we have with our expert surgeons. For VCF patients, a long-term correction of the fracture is key to delivering the best patient outcome. Our Sycamore implant is designed to deliver exactly that”.
