ORTHOsoft Inc. announces the success of its clinical trials and marketing launch of the NavitrackER reflector unit, a revolution in the field of computer-assisted surgery



    MONTREAL, June 15 /CNW Telbec/ - ORTHOsoft Inc. (TSX-V: OSH), a leader in
computer-assisted surgery systems that increase the accuracy of orthopaedic
hip, knee and spine procedures, is proud to announce the successful launch of
the Navitracker(TM), a disposable reflector that revolutionizes the tracking
of instruments and patients' anatomy during orthopaedic surgeries.
    "We've just gained a major strategic advantage in our field," stated
Dr. Louis-Philippe Amiot, Chairman and CEO of ORTHOsoft Inc. "The
Navitracker(TM) is a disposable used to track anatomical structures during
orthopaedic surgeries. Not only is our invention made locally, but it's more
accurate and far easier to use than the older technology that we used to buy,
and it will definitely increase the market penetration of our product. We're
very pleased with the results obtained during the clinical trials phase, which
enabled us to show a statistically significant improvement," added Dr. Amiot.
    "The Navitracker(TM) is already a commercial success. In fact, many
surgeons are refusing to use navigation systems if they can't use our new
Navitracker(TM)," explains Yvan Beaudoin, Chief Operating Officer at ORTHOsoft
Inc. "It's clearly a major competitive advantage that distinguishes us and
consolidates our position as a world leader in the field of computer-assisted
surgery. It also gives us the opportunity to considerably improve our profit
margins, since we now control the fabrication of the product, added Beaudoin.
