The investment is part of the Group's digital strategy. The participation is seen as an important step towards realizing further software developments as well as virtual and augmented reality applications in the future.
The KLS Martin Group and CADS GmbH have been working very closely and successfully together for almost four years now. After less than a year of development, the first joint product was presented in October 2015 in Melbourne, Australia: IPS Gate®. The web-based platform IPS Gate® offers surgeons and users a completely digital process for the virtual planning of patient-specific splints, guides, models and implants as well as the OR.
"IPS Gate® is a success story: More than 3,500 surgeons worldwide use the web portal today and more than 15,000 cases have been created there to date. Thanks to our cooperation with CADS, we have been able to help thousands of patients worldwide to be treated with individual implants. We are very proud of this." says Michael Martin, President Marketing of the KLS Martin Group.
Due to the huge success of IPS Gate® and the increasing importance of the digital strategy within the KLS Martin Group, we needed the security to be able to invest even more strategically in CADS in the future. The team surrounding the IPS Gate® as well as new software developments and virtual and augmented reality applications are to be greatly expanded - this required security for both partners.
"We are looking forward to a long and successful cooperation with CADS", says Christian Leibinger.
