Think Surgical continues to forge new partnerships involving its handheld surgical robotics and implants for total knee arthroplasty (TKA).

The latest involves Signature Orthopaedics, a design-focused orthopedic device manufacturer in Australia.

The collaboration has a SignatureOrtho knee design joining the Think Surgical ID-HUB, a proprietary data bank of implant modules for use with its FDA-cleared TMINI miniature robotic system.

Fremont, California–based Think Surgical seeks to provide open-platform orthopedic surgical robots that support implants from multiple manufacturers. Earlier this year, it added implants from Maxx Orthopedics and b-ONE Ortho Corp. Last month, orthopedics device giant Zimmer Biomet entered into a limited distribution agreement to integrate ZB technology into a customized TMINI solution. ZB plans to introduce the customized TMINI system in select U.S. markets in the second half of 2024.

Think Surgical CEO Stuart Simpson said in a news release that the company is excited about the new collaboration with SignatureOrtho, which boosts choice for TMINI customers and maximizes the company’s commitment to an implant agnostic platform.

Adding the SignatureOrtho knee system to the ID-HUB database will enable SignatureOrtho customers to have access to robotic-assisted technology for total knee replacement

“This partnership highlights our dedication to innovation and our responsiveness to customer feedback. Together, we aim to enhance surgical precision and improve patient outcomes through this innovative effort,” said Signature Orthopaedics CEO Declan Brazil.
