Corin enters the orthopaedic robotics market by acquiring Omni

UK-based international orthopaedic company Corin Group, backed by the Permira funds, has acquired the US-based Omni Orthopedics, a pioneer in robotic-assisted total knee replacement.

Founded in 1999 by a team of medical device engineers, Omni  is now at the forefront of robotic-assisted knee replacement.

Its OMNIBotics is a unique imageless total knee replacement solution which combines a robotic cutting guide with the world’s first robotic tool to measure ligament function.

The system allows tailoring of the implant positioning to each individual patient, resulting in less patient pain and faster rehabilitation.

Corin’s CEO Stefano Alfonsi said: “We look forward to working together as a combined organisation to further develop our presence in the world’s largest market – the United States.

“With the combination of Corin’s unique Optimised Positioning System (OPS) for the hip and the OMNIBotics platform for the knee, Corin is now uniquely positioned to address functional patient-specific joint replacement.”
