Mitch Brogan here with some nearly unbelievable news,
As you may or may not know, 9 years ago I was cycling in London, Ontario when I was struck by a drunk driver and suffered a spinal cord injury. After recovering to the best of my ability, and over the past 4 years, I've developed a company in London, Ontario, Able Bionics, that has been operating modern exoskeletons and robotics for rehabilitation, helping many individuals with lower limb weakness and paralysis get up and walk again. As a quadriplegic, this technology has greatly assisted me in my own personal rehabilitation and has allowed myself and others to achieve a higher quality of therapy which has lead to a better quality of life.
Able Bionics is the first company in Canada that can sell individuals personal exoskeleton devices and train them then in their use. We also operate an Able Bionics program out of the Aspen Club & Spa in Aspen, Colorado, charitably funded by the Bridging Bionics Foundation.
We here at Able Bionics have been holding onto a big secret. Something HUGE is coming up soon and we cannot hold onto it much longer.
*** CBC has informed us that Able Bionics WILL be appearing on the 3rd episode of the 10th season of Dragons' Den airing on October 21st, 2015 at 8:00 pm EST. ***
They already showed a tiny sneak peak of us on the first episode! See if you can spot us.
Find out what happens when I walk in a REX robotic walking device for the Dragons alongside a friend and farmer, Mike Munro (in our EKSO device), and physiotherapist extraordinaire Sari Shatil. I'll tell ya this much..... we attempted to get the Dragons' gold!
Hopefully you can catch the episode on October 21st at 8:00 pm EST, and if not it will be available for your viewing pleasure online at CBC.ca afterwards.
