Maquet and Richard Wolf Gmbh Announce Major Sales Partnership in or Integration

RASTATT, Germany, November 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Maquet and Richard Wolf announced today a non-exclusive sales cooperation on a regional level. By joining forces, both companies will be in the unique position to offer complete, efficient and high-quality OR integration solutions for endoscopy.

Both companies have significant market share in their respective fields of expertise. Maquet offers a full range of products for the OR from tables, lights and ceiling supply units to intraoperative media management. Richard Wolf is one of the world's leading manufacturers of endoscopic equipment, providing best-in-class integrated solutions for minimally invasive surgery in all major surgical disciplines.

A modern OR is a highly technified environment consisting of many complex devices that must seamlessly and transparently work together to allow the OR staff to perform safe, high-quality surgery. Furthermore ORs are part of the larger hospital IT landscape exchanging data in and out of hospital networks such as clinic information and picture archiving systems. Managing these devices and networks as well as dealing with environmental control and multi-modality video and image distribution is a major challenge for the OR personnel.

Today's announcement introduces the integration of Richard Wolf's endoscopy tower, including the device control solution core.control, into Maquet's TEGRIS system for OR integration. This combined solution will significantly improve intraoperative efficiency by streamlining device control and overall OR management thus accelerating procedures and making them safer by allowing the OR staff to concentrate on their primary task.

According to Bastian Diebald, head of Maquet's OR Integration Global Sales, "As a provider of OR Integration systems, we view our role in the operating room efficiency improvement by uniting video routing, recording and transmission, data management and device control - independent of the manufacturer. This stable cooperation provides an exciting opportunity for our two companies to combine forces and bring a lot more value to our customers". "The seamless integration of Richard Wolf's core.control and Maquet's Tegris offers Richard Wolf the unique opportunity to provide a scalable and comprehensive solution bearing the quality and reliability of two world class companies", said Timo Haller, head of OR Integration at Richard Wolf.
