Ganymed Robotics Raises Additional €15 M through Series B Extension Bringing Total Amount to €36 M

Share

Ganymed Robotics, a developer of computer vision software and robotics technologies for orthopedic surgeons, announced it has extended its Series B with an additional close of €15 million, bringing the total Series B amount to €36 million. The Fund of the European Innovation Council, through its Accelerator Program, and Cap Horn invest €14 million. Bpifrance, the French national investment bank, extended a €1 million loan to finance market access work. The initial Series B close of €21 million, led by Cathay Health and joined by Crédit Mutuel Innovation, Kurma Partners and BNP Paribas Développement, was announced in July 2022.

The combined funds will be used to complete development of Ganymed Robotics’ surgical robotic assistant for knee arthroplasty (TKA), accelerate regulatory and market access activities, and diversify the innovation product pipeline.

“Welcoming such highly valuable investors a few months after an oversubscribed Series B first close, puts us in an extremely solid position amid a worldwide financing crunch for start-ups. We now have the resources and expertise to bring our unique patented technology to market, with the aim to become standard of care for joint replacement,” says Sophie Cahen, CEO and co-founder of Ganymed Robotics.

“Robotic assistance, together with image guidance and clinical decision tools, will be pivotal to push the limits of what can be achieved surgically and even more important to offer quality care to everyone, everywhere, in the context of a worldwide shortage on medical expertise and staff. Ganymed Robotics, with its proprietary intuitive technology and highly talented team, is uniquely positioned to win on both aspects in the field of joint replacement,” added Michel Therin, DVM, PhD, Chairman of Ganymed Robotics’ Board.

Ganymed Robotics’ ambition is to democratize access to quality care in orthopedics and allow all such patients throughout the world, to benefit from high-quality care. It has developed a proprietary technology platform built around two disruptive innovations: contactless localization of the bones and human-machine collaborative movement. The first application is a co-manipulated surgical robotic assistant for total knee arthroplasty (TKA).

The market for TKA is expected to rise from 2.4 million procedures in 2021 to 5.7 million in 2030 in the OECD alone. Yet 95% are performed without technological assistance, leading to sub-optimal outcomes; patient dissatisfaction rate is above 20%. Ganymed’s device aims to improve both patient outcome and surgeon experience in a value-based-care environment. After total knee arthroplasty, Ganymed is planning to expand its technology platform to address other market needs.
