Due to COVID-19, thousands of orthopedic patients have experienced a sudden cancellation of scheduled hip, knee, shoulder, extremity, and spine surgeries, as well as physical therapy sessions. These patients will be forced to endure their pain and limited mobility for an indefinite amount of time. Surgeons, physical therapists and engineers in the orthopedic community are challenging themselves and the public to rapidly deliver innovative products, services, and software that can bring relief.
NovApproach Spine’s CEO, Raymond Cloutier, is sponsoring the For Such A Time As This—OrthoChallenge to help expedite introduction of new product, software, and services that address the needs of orthopedic patients whose surgeries and therapies are delayed. The top 10 ideas will be presented to the Food & Drug Administration and other government leaders to help “fast track” these innovations to patients.
The new product, software, or service ideas will help orthopedic patients with their pain and limitations while they wait for surgery and reduce the COVID-19 risks unique to orthopedic patients.
