PathKeeper – an emerging Israeli med-tech company – has just announced the opening of a new subsidiary in Malta.

Malta Enterprise CEO Kurt Farrugia celebrated this development.

“Such innovative start-ups have the potential to attract the best talent, expertise, and skills in their field, in this case in relation to robotic engineering and technology,” he said.

“We look forward to seeing the development of the technology which PathKeeper will be working on as well as seeing its eventual application in the medical sector, leading to better care for patients and more cost-efficient medical solutions,” the CEO added.

PathKeeper has developed a 3D navigation system that offers continuous anatomical tracking for spine surgeries. Said system is also radiation-free, cost-efficient, and mobile.

“Classified as having an advanced economy by International Monetary Fund, and an innovation-driven economy by the World Economic Forum, PathKeeper strongly believes in Malta’s economy and wants to grow with Malta,” company CEO Erez Lampert said.

“We are grateful to Malta Enterprise for the collaboration and support. We are eager to grow and expand together with our Maltese colleagues and look forward to profiting together with them as we develop the next generation of spine navigation,” he continued.

PathKeeper’s Malta subsidiary will be developing a robotic arm that will further enhance the accuracy and efficiency of spinal surgeries. This will improve spinal surgeries’ success rate to the benefit of patients.

This system can also be used in other orthopaedic surgeries to maximise the efficacy and accuracy of interventions.
