Titan Medical Inc. Signs Exclusive Worldwide Development and Licensing Agreements with LiveData, Inc.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - September 15, 2011) - Titan Medical Inc. ("the Company") (TSX VENTURE:TMD) announced today that it has signed a six-year development and licensing agreement with LiveData, Inc., a leading innovator of real-time data integration and display technology. Under the terms of the agreement, Titan Medical will have an exclusive, worldwide license for LiveData RTI Server as an integration technology for the Company's Amadeus Composer™ robotic surgical platform.

Using Amadeus Composer™, surgeons are able to receive multiple information sources for treatment or training, and can seamlessly switch between the two. Titan Medical will use the LiveData technology to enable innovative holistic displays for surgeons. A real-time data integration engine, LiveData RTI, unifies disparate systems — such as medical devices from diverse vendors, hospital information systems, in-house applications and data structures — and delivers real-time data streams to visual applications for synthesis and display.

"We are pleased to have entered into this licensing and development agreement with LiveData for its innovative integration and display technology for use in Amadeus Composer™, our next generation robotic surgical platform," said Dr. Reiza Rayman, President of Titan Medical Inc. "Obviously the more information you can deliver to a surgeon intra-operatively, the better. The inclusion of LiveData's unique patient information in our surgeon console not only strengthens our patent portfolio but it also allows our surgeons to have patient critical information literally at their fingertips."

"LiveData occupies a unique position in the hospital setting. Integrating our technology into the Amadeus platform will provide surgeons with unparalleled visibility into all salient patient-centric information. Additionally, surgeons will have the dashboard necessary to maximize patient safety and surgical performance," said Jeffrey Robbins, Founder, President and CEO of LiveData, Inc.
