Bioness Announces Availability and First Installations of the Vector Gait and Safety System
Jul 15 13
Bioness Inc. announced international availability and the first U.S. installations of the Vector Gait and Safety System(TM). The System, first installed in June at the University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute and now in place at Cincinnati Children's Hospital in Ohio and WakeMed Rehabilitation Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina, aims to transform gait, balance and functional rehabilitation by allowing healthcare providers to administer meaningful rehabilitative care sooner and more aggressively while providing a safe and flexible environment. The Vector Gait and Safety System allows therapists to train their patients in overground gait, balance, and a variety of functional activities following neurologic and orthopedic injuries or any other conditions requiring assistive gait and rehabilitative training. The System consists of an overhead robotic trolley, a wireless software interface and conductive rail. During rehabilitation, the patient is connected to the Vector via a harness that is attached to the robot on the ceiling-mounted, zero-footprint rail.
Bioness, Inc. Receives First FDA Clearance of Neurostimulation System for Children Suffering from Foot Drop
Jan 22 13
Bioness, Inc. announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its L300 Foot Drop System to pediatric patients and their caregivers. This is the first FDA cleared neurostimulation device of this kind for use with children. The L300 is a neuromodulation technology designed to treat foot drop, a condition which causes walking difficulty in adults and pediatrics with upper motor neuron pathologies. Bioness will be showcasing the system and its use in pediatrics at the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) conference in San Diego. Worn on the leg, the L300 has three main parts: a small wireless sensor in the shoe, a sport brace-like leg cuff worn just below the knee and a hand-held remote control. The three components use wireless communication to talk to each other. When an individual initiates a step, the L300 sends low-level electrical stimulation to the nerves in the lower leg which control the muscles responsible for lifting the foot. By lifting the foot at the appropriate time, patients may walk with increased confidence, improved speed and reduced fatigue. The L300 Foot Drop System's main use is by patients in the community. It can also be used for gait rehabilitation in inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation settings to potentially realize a variety of clinical benefits including improved mobility, maintaining or increasing range of motion, re-educating muscles, the prevention or slowing of muscle loss and increased local blood flow. The pediatric L300 is now available for purchase.
