Materialise-OrthoView

Materialise, a provider of 3D printing software and services, has acquired OrthoView, the world's leading provider of 2D digital pre-operative planning and templating solutions for orthopedic surgeons. The transaction combines the frontrunner in 2D templating on X-ray images with Materialise's market-leading position in 3D pre-operative planning tools to provide surgeons and hospitals a one-stop shop for surgical planning software tools and corresponding 3D printed medical devices. OrthoView’s software imports a digital X-ray image from a Picture Archiving Communications System and positions the templates of suitable prostheses on the X-ray image at the correct scale. OrthoView currently serves more than 11,000 orthopedic surgeons in 60 countries globally, focusing primarily on joint replacements.

"We benefited from both Corum's depth and breadth during this process. Their experience and knowledge of the technology industry made it possible for us to conduct a broad, global search for the right partner, and we're thrilled to have found the ideal match in Materialise."

quotesOne of the things that really gave me a lot of confidence, as Corum took us through the process, was that ultimately, a deal is about the people. It’s about chemistry, the fit, the synergy between the people involved. quotes
