Bioness Inc. Key Developments

Bioness, Inc. Launches Bioness Integrated Therapy System (BITS(TM))

Bioness Inc. announced the launch of the Bioness Integrated Therapy System (BITS(TM)), a touch-screen based clinical rehabilitation platform designed to evaluate and improve abilities for individuals with disabilities resulting from traumatic injuries and neurological disorders and to improve performance in competitive athletes. BITS is a clinical nexus that allows current and future Bioness technologies to be integrated on a single platform. The system consists of a touchscreen display (up to 65") mounted on a highly portable stand and is designed to support a series of software programs for optimizing patient outcomes. The system is being launched with a Visuomotor software program covering seven main therapy categories including eye-hand, rotator, rapid eye movement, memory recall, metronome, letter chart and visual-motor programs. These therapy categories provide unique programs for visual-motor integration, improving reaction time, improving visual and auditory memory, visual-vestibular integration and improving hand speed and field attention.

Bioness, Inc. Announces 42-Week Follow Up Results from Functional Ambulation

Bioness, Inc. announced that 42-week follow-up results from the company's Functional Ambulation: Standard Treatment vs. Electrical Stimulation Therapy (FASTEST) trial of the Bioness L300(R) Foot Drop System have been published in the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation's journal, PM&R. The study, titled "Response and Prediction of Improvement in Gait Speed from Functional Electrical Stimulation in Post-Stroke Drop Foot," is an extension of the primary 30-week analysis demonstrating a similar impact with greater satisfaction when the L300 was compared to an ankle foot orthosis (AFO). Focusing on the participants randomized to the L300 group, the latest results published in PM&R demonstrate that persons with drop foot following stroke continued to show clinically meaningful and statically significant improvement in gait speed using the Bioness L300 up to 42 weeks. As a whole, the group experienced an immediate increase of walking speed of 19% which continued to improve to 33.3% at 30 weeks as compared to baseline. This progressed to 45.0% improvement at the end of 42 weeks.
