Effective immediately, Olympus will be the exclusive distributor of the FlexDex Needle Driver for the U.S. market. This agreement leverages the power of Olympus’ 3D imaging technology and FlexDex’s surgeon powered robotic instruments.
Randy Clark, Group Vice President of the Surgical Division at Olympus said, “Combining Olympus’ expertise in minimally invasive surgery and 3D technology with FlexDex’s unique technology for handling surgical instruments — without the complexity and cost of a computer-aided robotic system — will be a game changer for physicians and patients. We are thrilled to add FlexDex to the Olympus portfolio, furthering our progress of improving patient satisfaction, decreasing costs and improving the quality of life for patients.”
With regard to the new agreement, FlexDex CEO and Co-Founder, Jim Geiger said, “FlexDex is excited to work with Olympus. With their world class sales force and advanced 3D technology and our revolutionary platform technology, we will redefine surgical robotics and bring the benefits of minimally invasive surgery to patients in any operating room, anytime, anywhere. Hospitals are constantly under pressure to reduce cost and improve patient outcomes. Using a multi-million dollar robotic system for procedures that have low margins, often associated with fixed reimbursement, can potentially further burden providers financially. FlexDex and Olympus are uniquely positioned to offer surgeons the precision and control they desire while maintaining the balance of cost, outcome and patient benefit.”
