RENO, Nev.–(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 31, 2022 – Melzi Surgical (“Melzi” or the “Company”), a surgical device company dedicated to creating innovative technologies that improve patient outcomes while reducing hospital expenses, today announced that it will participate in the Virtual Investor Innovations in MedTech Event on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at 11:00 AM ET.
For the roundtable discussion, Reid Rutherford, Co-Founder and CEO and Samuel Weprin, MD, Co-Founder and Head of Product Innovation of Melzi Surgical will be joined by Key Opinion Leaders, Jay Shah, MD, Urology Oncologist, Vice Chief of Staff at Stanford Health Care, and Daniel D. Eun, MD, Chief, Robotic Surgery at Temple University Hospital. As part of the event, the Company will discuss its lead product, the Melzi Sharps Finder, the growing problem of surgical lost sharps, and the need for innovative technologies that improve patient outcomes while reducing hospital expenses.

The use of an adjunct technology, like Melzi Sharps Finder, can bring patient safety, time, financial, and risk benefits. In a lab study, testing results show 13mm, 17mm, and 26mm needles detected at 95% reliability rate. Additionally, in two recently conducted evaluations of the Melzi Sharps Finder where time to locate (TTL), accuracy, and the time to decide (TTD) were recorded. All of the results from the evaluations were statistically significant.
In addition to the moderated portion of the event, investors and interested parties will have the opportunity to submit questions live during the event. The Company will answer as many questions as possible during the event.
