Bioness, Inc. Announces 42-Week Follow Up Results from Functional Ambulation
Feb 3 14
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.

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.
