MY01 presented at the EWI SOMOS Conference in Washington D.C.

The government shutdown might have affected politicians and the FDA, but it didn’t slow the excitement of surgeons for MY01. Ed and Charles went down to Washington to present our device and the data the team gathered at the Society of Military Orthopaedic Surgeons Extremity War Injuries Conference (SOMOS EWI). Presenting our research at the poster session, we drew the attention of many surgeons and further confirmed their excitement for the availability of MY01 as a tool for ACS diagnosis. We also participated in the think tank on current concepts in acute compartment syndrome. We were able to communicate with physician decision makers for future market development and the ongoing funding of ACS research

Poster available in the education center.

Even without a booth, we made a splash at the 2018 OTA Annual Meeting. Ed presented MY01 in front of the Canadian Orthopaedic Trauma Society (COTS) while devices were passed around. The final details of the Canadian study were reviewed by Dr. Ross Leighton (president of COTS) and there was an unanimous interest in participating. We also had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Schmidt, a world expert in compartment syndrome research, who will be including our device in the next two Major Extremity Trauma Research Consortium (METRC) study proposals. We met with surgeons from around the world who showed interest in our device and are excited to use it in their hospitals.
