The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) Annual Meeting will soon open its doors to welcome 1,300 sports medicine specialists, practitioners, and society members. Meeting attendees receive four days of leading research and education programming from elite orthopaedic sports medicine experts and medical innovators.
While you attend AOSSM, be sure to check out a presentation by Dr. Kent Feldmen titled ‘Weight Bearing CT: Shining New Light on Common Lower Extremity Sports Injuries.” This presentation will occur on Thursday, July 5 from 10:55 a.m. to 11:05 a.m. at AOSSM Booth #401.
AOSSM 2018 takes place this year on July 5 through July 8 in San Diego, California at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. The Annual Meeting plays a crucial role in providing insights on frontline research to the orthopaedic sports medicine community, which is why CurveBeam is excited to exhibit.
Learn More About pedCAT and LineUP
Visit booth 401 to learn about how pedCAT and LineUP could improve your practice. Bilateral, weight bearing scans of the feet, ankles and knees give physicians the information they need to assess the biomechanical spatial relationships and alignment of the lower extremities.
Also learn about the InReach, an upper extremity imaging solution for immediate point-of-care diagnosis of scaphoid fractures, distal radius fractures, and other easily misdiagnosed injuries.

Curvebeam announced the company’s ISO 13485 certification has been updated to the latest revision of the standard. The company’s quality system is now certified to the ISO 13485:2016 standard, which represents the most recent revision of the widely recognized manufacturing quality standard issued by the international Organization for Standardization (ISO).
In addition to 13485:2016 requirements, this certification covers the requirements of the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) of Australia; Brazil’s Agencia de Vigilancia Sanitaria (ANVISA); Health Canada; the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP).
“These latest accomplishments are the result of a significant effort by our entire quality, technical and operations teams,” said Ryan Conlon, Director of Quality and Regulatory Affairs for Curvebeam. “CurveBeam’s quality system lays a strong operational foundation for continuous innovation in orthopedic imaging.”
The ISO 13485 standard is specifically designed to certify medical device manufacturers and their key suppliers. The International Standard outlines requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements.
CurveBeam is excited to attend the AOFAS Annual Meeting 2018. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn about weigh bearing technology and how it’s changing the orthopedic industry.
