Overview of the Institution
Imed Surgical Technology LLC. was established in 2006 in the state of New Jersey in the city of Fort Lee by Tamer Işın. The aim of the company is to develop and produce new generations of orthopedic fixators. The company’s flagship invention is “ADAM FRAME Computer Aided Quadrilateral Octagonal External Fixator”. The biggest difference of this fixator from other fixators in the sector is that it is computer-aided, and the great mobility provided by 8 arms. It is the easiest method to use and apply among existing ex-fixes and has the highest treatment percentage. The patent of the fixator belongs to Tamer Işın. There are four existing and ongoing R&D projects, two of which are publicly supported and the other two are continuing as well. In 2017, in order to continue to carry out R&D activities in Turkey, the company is established as “Imed Surgical Technology” in Hacettepe Technopolis .
