Lazurite Teams Up with Mendtronix for Launch of ArthroFree™: The First-in-Class Wireless Surgical Camera

October 12, 2022

SAN DIEGO, CA—(—Mendtronix Inc. (MTI), a leading medical logistics company specializing in ISO 13485-certified bi-coastal 3PL services, has partnered with Lazurite to support the launch of the ArthroFree™ System, Lazurite’s new first-in-class wireless surgical camera. Mendtronix will provide kitting and fulfillment logistics support, along with other technical services as Lazurite begins distribution of the product. Orders will be fulfilled nationally from Mendtronix’s east coast distribution center in the Pittsburgh, PA area.

“We are pleased to partner with Mendtronix to support the launch of ArthroFree,” said Lazurite President and General Counsel Leah Brownlee. “Their comprehensive array of medical logistics services makes them an ideal partner to extend our capabilities and ensure timely delivery of product to customers.” Lazurite is a medical device and technology company in Cleveland, Ohio. Its ArthroFree System is the first wireless surgical camera system to receive FDA clearance for arthroscopy and general endoscopy. The first in-patient use of ArthroFree took place at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center in mid-September and launched the commercialization of the ArthroFree System.

By eliminating conventional camera cables that tether the surgeon to the surgical tower, the ArthroFree System is expected to increase OR efficiency and lower customer costs. Additionally, with its solid state, low heat, high efficiency Meridiem™ light technology, the system promises to eliminate camera related patient burns and OR fires. ArthroFree is a modular system designed to be drop-in compatible with existing patient data consoles, surgical displays and endoscopes found in minimally invasive operating rooms.
