Acumed acquired technology that will support development of a total elbow joint replacement.
Purchased from Bluefish Orthopedics for an undisclosed amount, the technology was designed by orthopedic surgeons Andrew Palmer, M.D. and Dale Dellacqua, M.D.
The total elbow will complement Acumed’s present elbow portfolio that includes Anatomic Radial Head Solutions, the Radial Head Plating System, the Elbow Plating System and the Acutrak 2® Headless Compression Screw.
“This acquisition will accelerate Acumed’s opportunity to build on the technology and deliver a compelling solution to address the unmet need for optimal total elbow replacement,” said Acumed President and CEO Sharon Wolfington.
Acumed's complete product line includes biologics and a variety of plating systems for use in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, ankle and foot.
