MMI Expands Global Footprint with Entry into Asia Pacific Market
MMI, (Medical Microinstruments, Inc.), a robotics company dedicated to increasing treatment options and improving clinical outcomes for patients with complex conditions, today announced that it will continue its global momentum with two distribution agreements covering nearly a dozen countries in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. The first partnership, with Device Technologies, will help to introduce the Symani Surgical System to Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Macau, and New Zealand, upon applicable regulatory approvals, as well as Australia, where it recently received approval from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). The other partnership, with TRM Korea, will facilitate the system’s entry into South Korea upon regulatory approval and will introduce microsurgical robotic technology to interested surgeons and hospitals.
The Symani Surgical System is a first-of-its-kind robotic technology that uniquely addresses the scale and complexities of microsurgery and supermicrosurgery. By allowing surgeons to replicate the natural movements of the human hand at the micro scale, it can expand treatment options for patients in need of soft tissue open surgical procedures, such as free flap reconstructions, lymphatic surgery, and trauma reconstructions. It is designed to help restore quality of life for more patients, accelerate the number of surgeons able to push the boundaries of complex procedures for delicate anatomy, and enable hospitals to expand their open surgical programs.
“Through our new partnerships in Asia Pacific, we have established roots that will ultimately help us expand patient access to robotic microsurgical and supermicrosurgical capability in a region of the world with clear demand for the technology,” said Matt Lemay, VP of Asia Pacific of MMI. “Surgeons from the APAC region have long been at the forefront of innovation in microsurgery, and we look forward to helping further those capabilities with the Symani Surgical System. As we advance our mission of increasing treatment options for patients with complex conditions, we are enthusiastic about our global progress and look forward to continuing our momentum in APAC and beyond.”
Device Technologies has provided healthcare professionals access to innovative, high quality medical devices, including leading robotics solutions, for over 30 years. They will open a new research and education center for robotic microsurgery with a premier medical institution as part of their partnership with MMI. The center will represent the first site in Central Asia where interested surgeons can learn more about the system.
“MMI and the Symani Surgical System are well aligned with our core mission to provide physicians and healthcare facilities with solutions that can drive improved patient outcomes,” said Heath Priestly, Managing Director at Device Technologies. “Originating in Australia, we have broadened our presence throughout the Asia Pacific region, establishing expertise and strong connections. We are eager to use our footprint to support MMI’s health system partnerships across the region and further increase patient access to sophisticated surgical techniques for complex conditions.”
TRM is the largest microsurgery company in South Korea and a pioneer in the medical technology and innovation space. They are collaborating with a world-renowned medical institution to open their own education center where surgeons will have the opportunity for informational sessions and hands-on learning about the Symani Surgical System.

ISFC to Focus on Central Role of Forestry Sector at COP2830.11.2023 17:56:00 CET | Press release
The International Sustainable Forestry Coalition (ISFC) will be representing some of the world’s largest companies engaged in sustainable forestry at COP28, and will be promoting the role of forestry and land-use in the global climate transition. Nations must find a way to reduce emissions by 43% by 2030 if we are to avoid the worst effects of climate change. With greater investment, forestry and land management could contribute up to 25% of the emissions reductions needed to reach net zero. It is widely expected at COP that there will be more focus on the role that sustainably produced timber can play in the built environment, and ISFC will be taking a leading role in these discussions and promoting the expanded contribution of the forestry sector to the decarbonization of the global economy. Dr. David Brand, Convening Chair of ISFC and Executive Chair of New Forest, commented, “The global climate effort requires expanded investment in sustainable land-use and sustainable materials in
