RAYNHAM, Mass., /PRNewswire/ -- OMNIlife science, Inc.

The multi-center U.S. study is evaluating this breakthrough technology that combines the accuracy of robotic-assisted bone cutting with active soft tissue management. The study currently involves five sites with additional sites to be added over the next several months.
The results from the initial four U.S. sites reflect the positive outcomes experienced in the Australian pilot program underway since March. "The excellent experience that has been seen in the US parallels the experience we have seen over the first 6 months," said Dr. , MD, FRACS, in Sydney. "Our patients all seem to be doing very well. They are achieving a good range of motion and excellent mobility at the early stage of their recovery."
