US-based Xenco Medical has launched a new on-demand trauma surgery delivery application (app), TraumaGPS, for its disposable spinal implant systems.

The Android app features a real-time GPS driver tracking that allows surgeons and hospital personnel to request for emergency delivery of the firm’s sterile-packaged systems and to track their movement on a mobile map.

Initially available only for 65 contracted hospitals in the country, the service includes Xenco Medical’s anterior cervical, posterior cervical, pedicle screw, and lumbar interbody spinal systems.

Xenco Medical founder and CEO Jason Haider said: “Allowing hospitals to precisely predict the arrival of emergency deliveries of Xenco Medical’s surgery-ready implant systems, TraumaGPS amplifies the impact our single-use devices have in accelerating the surgical process and optimising care.”

“The firm intends to offer increased operating room (OR) efficiency, avoid the internal logistics required for autoclave process and to instantly address trauma cases without any delay.”

The firm will package its lightweight, easily transportable, composite polymer, single-use instrument and implants for spinal procedures in a single sterile package to ensure immediate usage following arrival at the hospital.

Through the new initiative, the firm intends to offer increased operating room (OR) efficiency, avoid the internal logistics required for autoclave process and to instantly address trauma cases without any delay that might be caused due to sterilisation.

Xenco Medical primarily focuses on offering safe surgical environment and improved spine surgery outcomes by providing disposable, sterile-packaged spinal implant systems.

The single-use systems are made from highly reinforced composite polymer and are said to be perfectly calibrated for patient-specific uses.
