VANCOUVER, British Columbia and CARLSBAD, Calif., March 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Canary Medical today announced that it has been named by Fierce Medtech as one of 2020’s Fierce 15, designating it as one of the most promising private companies in the industry.
“Almost a decade ago, we saw the potential to improve outcomes and reduce cost in healthcare by doing for implanted medical devices what Silicon Valley has done for just about everything else: connecting them to the internet. As these efforts begin to bear fruit, it’s tremendously gratifying to be recognized by Fierce Medtech, and industry analysts generally, as a leader in this space,” said Bill Hunter, MD, CEO of Canary Medical. “Our first program, currently under review by the FDA, will allow the world’s best-selling prosthetic knee joint to generate data on implant function and patient activity with unprecedented accuracy and compliance. And what we’ve learned in orthopedics has shown us the way forward, as we look toward connecting implantable devices in many different therapeutic areas.”The Fierce 15 celebrates the spirit of being “fierce” — championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition. This is Fierce Medtech’s 9th annual Fierce 15 selection. This year’s full list of winners can be viewed online at https://www.fiercebiotech.com/special-report/fierce-medtech-s-2020-fierce-15.
