Bodycad to Exhibit at Canadian Orthopaedic Association Annual Meeting

QUEBEC CITY, May 11, 2016 /CNW/ — Bodycad will exhibit at the Canadian Orthopaedic Association (COA) Annual Meeting, June 16 to 19, 2016. The company will feature Bodycad OnCall, its groundbreaking personalized orthopaedic restorations for complex cases.

Bodycad OnCall enables surgeons to work with skilled Bodycad PREP Techs to design a fully personalized, individually manufactured restoration that fits the patient’s individual anatomy. Off-the-shelf implants, by contrast, require the patient’s anatomy to conform to preset, often sub-optimal standards. The Bodycad OnCall process is ideal for oncology, revision, osteotomy and other complex cases.

“With personalized restoration, the implant design is done after the acquisition of proper data from the patient,” said Etienne Belzile, MD, FRCS, orthopaedic surgeon at the Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Québec. “The advantages are that it fits the patient better, allows less trauma to the soft tissue, and probably creates a faster recovery overall.”

Bodycad is the only Canadian orthopaedic manufacturer and this will be the first time Bodycad exhibits at COA.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce Bodycad OnCall to orthopaedic surgeons right here in Quebec City,” said Jean Robichaud, founder and CEO of Bodycad. “It is an honor and a privilege to represent the innovative and life-enhancing work of Canadian medical device manufacturers.”
