Currently in development, TBS Ortho is a medical imaging software technology, which will give orthopedic surgeons critical information on a patient’s trabecular bone microarchitecture. This will help them select the most appropriate procedures and implants and ensure optimal implant stability and outcome for hips, shoulders, spine or knee replacement surgery.
TBS Ortho is under development, pending 510K clearance and not yet available for sale.
This product is currently under investigation and the proposed clinical claims are not yet FDA approved.
