Mazor Robotics Announces First Follow-on Order from Major U.S. Hospital Corporation

Hospital in Memphis Acquires Mazor Robotics' Renaissance System; Represents First System Install in the State of Tennessee and the Fifth System in the major U.S. hospital corporation

CAESAREA, Israel--Mazor Robotics Ltd. (TASE: MZOR; NASDAQCM: MZOR), a developer of innovative surgical robots and complementary products, today announced that it has received its first follow-on order from a major U.S. hospital corporation for the Renaissance system. The system will be installed in a full-service hospital located in the East Memphis area that is a leading medical center in the mid-south.


The purchase order for the Renaissance system was received on June 28, 2013 and represents the fifth system acquired by a major U.S. hospital corporation, which acquired its first four Renaissance systems earlier in the year.

"We are pleased to have received our first follow-on order from a major U.S. hospital corporation, reinforcing the benefits our Renaissance system is able to achieve from a clinical and economic proposition," commented Ori Hadomi, Chief Executive Officer. "Furthermore, this is also our first Renaissance in Tennessee and we are excited to be associated with a medical center that has a rich history in the mid south US region. Our system will enable the hospital to meet its mission statement of healing, supporting, and comforting the patients it cares for in a superior surgical environment."

Renaissance, Mazor Robotics' surgical guidance system for spine procedures, has been used to perform thousands of procedures worldwide (with over 35,000 implants placed in those procedures) for a wide variety of spinal conditions, many of which would not have been attempted without this technology. Renaissance is transforming spine surgery from freehand operations to highly-accurate, state-of-the-art guided procedures that raise the standard of care with better clinical results.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
