The shorts have been waiting for this product - big issues for MAKO. Should MAKO try to buy them?
Blue Belt is a lousy bet for the VC firm that bought it. MAKO in 120+ hospitals in US vs. ZERO for BB.
BB is five years behind MAKO in ramp-up and its technology is not "robotic"...no haptics. Red Herring if there ever was one.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Of all the things you should worry about, BlueBelt is the very least of them. It looks like a Ronco Buttoneer and has just about as much appeal to patients looking for the best in knee surgery.
Come to X hospital and have your partial knee done by a?
It really doesn't have the robot appeal.
Bonebore, did you ever see their holiday video? Doesn't make MAKO tremble that's for sure.
Replace '??' with om.
WHY? Buy inferior tech when you can easily out compete it?
