Medineering, the German maker of surgical robotics, disclosed that its positioning arm won CE Mark approval from the European Commission.
Approval means the company’s positioning arm is now OK’d for holding and positioning passive adapters and robots in otolaryngology (ear, nose & throat), neurosurgery and spinal surgery. The positioning arm “is the base of a completely new concept of robotic assistance,” according to an Oct. 20 Medineering news release.
The CE marking on a product indicates that a manufacturer declares the product meets all the legal requirements and can be sold throughout Europe.
Medineering, which was founded in 2014, develops a suite of robotic assistance technology. The robots are designed to assist surgeons in complex anatomical regions. In January the company closed a Series A funding round led by Brainlab.
