RIVANNA Announces Partnership With UK-Based Vertec Scientific

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA--(Marketwired - September 27, 2016) - RIVANNA, an innovative medical-device company that has developed a revolutionary pocket-sized ultrasound-based device for automated spinal and epidural anesthesia guidance, announces a distribution partnership with UK-based Vertec Scientific.

Accuro is the world's first ultrasound-based system specifically designed to help anesthesia providers effortlessly apply spinal and epidural anesthesia. The Accuro features SpineNav3D™ and BoneEnhance™ innovations, which provide automated measurements of spinal midline and epidural depth in patients with challenging anatomy and high BMI.

"It is our objective to bring innovative technologies, like Accuro, to our customers to improve their practice or institution's performance," says Bill Hipgrave, Managing Director, Vertec Scientific. "Our company's philosophy and Rivanna Medical's are in alignment. Ultimately, we are both focused on aiding anesthesia providers to be more efficient and successful with difficult cases."

The relationship with Vertec complements RIVANNA's established, distribution-partnership roster and demonstrates RIVANNA's significant international expansion since Accuro's launch less than one year ago.

"Our company mission is to establish Accuro as the new standard of care for spinal and epidural anesthesia applications," says RIVANNA Chairman and CEO Will Mauldin. "And if our growing list of distribution partners is any indication -- we are making excellent progress."

Accuro, by RIVANNA, is the world's first ultrasound-based system specifically designed to help anesthesia providers effortlessly apply spinal and epidural anesthesia. Accuro's revolutionary image-guidance platform features SpineNav3D™, which automates measurements of the spinal midline, epidural depth and trajectory; BoneEnhance™, a technology innovation designed to visualize bone landmarks, making it easier and faster (compared to conventional ultrasound) to interpret the underlying image. Accuro supports a sterile environment for optimal patient safety. For anesthesia providers, certainty can be effortless with Accuro.

RIVANNA, located in Charlottesville, Virginia, is the innovative medical-device company that imagined, engineered, and commercialized Accuro. Addressing the last frontier of image guidance in anesthesia, RIVANNA's revolutionary application of automated 3D-navigation technology to ultrasound imaging of the spine gives anesthesia providers an intuitive extension of their hands to precisely administer epidural and spinal anesthesia. This proprietary imaging device is FDA 510(k)-cleared for spinal-anesthesia guidance and a variety of additional imaging applications.
