AlterG, Inc. Announces Launch of Bionic Leg(TM)

AlterG, Inc. has announced the launch of the AlterG Bionic Leg, a battery-powered, wearable robotic training device activated by patient initiated movement. The AlterG Bionic Leg made its debut at the APTA Conference & Exposition in Salt Lake City, Utah, on June 26, 2013. Used by physical therapists on patients with impaired mobility, the AlterG Bionic Leg strengthens stance, improves gait, and enhances active motor learning while protecting its user. Currently, it is a crucial component for stroke rehabilitation and therapy for patients with chronic, degenerative neurological gait impairment including Parkinson's disease and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The Bionic Leg has also proven to be of high value in rehabilitation therapy for orthopedic injury. The Bionic Leg provides the specific assistance needed by patients to participate more actively in sit-to-stand, overground walking and stair climbing exercises that are critical to the recovery of gait and balance. When a patient begins to stand up or ascend a stair, the software's sensors use the patients shifting weight and the position of the leg to detect when assistive force is needed for leg extension and will help lift the patient. When the patient wants to sit down or descend stairs, the device applies a resistance force to provide controlled descent. While walking, the device allows the leg to move freely during the swing phase, while providing added support during the stance phase. The Bionic Leg can be used to provide physical support and therapy across markets where patients suffer with mobility impairment and gait deficits.
