Corin-MAKO: five-year global distribution agreement
Corin has entered into a five-year global distribution agreement with MAKO Surgical Corp. Under the terms of the agreement, Corin will supply MAKO with a hip implant system for use with MAKO’s RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System. Corin’s implant system will include the MetaFix hip system and the Trinity acetabular shell system.
MAKO expects to include Corin hip implants among the hip systems available for use with the RIO® following Corin’s expected receipt of FDA 510(k) approval for certain Corin Trinity options. Subject to FDA clearance, a commercial release in the US by MAKO of the Corin hip implant system is currently planned for the second half of 2011. The agreement also allows for the potential future integration of other Corin implant systems.
