ABLE BIONICS FEATURED ON DRAGONS’ DEN, SIGNS CONTRACT WITH REWALK
LONDON, Ontario – October 19th, 2015 - Able Bionics Corporation and ReWalk Robotics Ltd. (NASDAQ:RWLK) sign distribution agreement for the sale of the ReWalk Personal 6.0 (P6) exoskeleton in Canada.
ReWalk is a wearable robotic exoskeleton that provides powered hip and knee motion to enable individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) to stand, walk, and negotiate stairs. The P6 is designed for all day walking and is the only device available for use at home and in the community. It provides the most precise fit, highest walking speed and most natural gait of any powered exoskeleton.
“ReWalk Robotics is excited about this unique relationship with Able Bionics”, said Pete Escallier, Vice President of New Business Development for ReWalk. “Now Canadians with spinal cord injuries have the opportunity to experience ReWalk technology in a professional and caring environment, and then continue their training, and take their own device home when they purchase the new ReWalk Personal 6.0. Medical benefits continue beyond rehab while giving users increased self-esteem and independence.”
The London ABLE (Accelerated Bionic Locomotor Exercise) Program has been operated jointly since March 2013 by NeuPhysio Rehabilitation and Community Neuro Rehab, two highly regarded neuro-rehabilitation companies trained in the use of leading edge equipment, such as the Ekso 1 with Variable Assist Support, as well as its newest acquisition, the Rehabilitation ReWalk 2.0.
Able Bionics is helping people get back on their feet and walking using bionics, like Miguel Sanchez, who was senselessly shot by gunmen in a café attack four years ago. Miguel, now with a T8 spinal cord injury, and his family are fundraising for the purchase of a ReWalk P6 exoskeleton and will be joining several other people wearing different bionic devices at Astronaut Chris Hadfield’s Generator event on October 28th at Massey Hall in Toronto. Able Bionics was invited as a featured guest to showcase several of these incredible technologies to the audience.
