Able Bionics to appear on Dragons' Den Season 10

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. 

Able Bionics honoured at AIS opening ceremony ribbon-cutting

During the Accessibility Innovation Showcase in Toronto, Able Bionics founder and President Mitchell Brogan was honourably mentioned and asked to join the opening ceremony ribbon-cutting event, which he did standing in his Rex robotic walking device. He joined Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, Toronto Mayor John Tory, and Theresa Hannigan, a US veteran who cut the ribbon while standing in a ReWalk exoskeleton. 

Able Bionics spent three days showcasing three different walking devices to the thousands of attendees to this event that highlights innovative startup companies developing products and services for the disabled. 

Able Bionics and Invest in Steps Foundation raffled a new Neptune Pine smartwatch to raise money for our monthly Bionic Bootcamp, and would like to congratulate Mr. J.P. of Toronto, Ontario who won with ticket #899133. We hope he will enjoy his prize.

ABLE BIONICS Bionic Bootcamp uses exoskeleton technology to help disabled people walk again

We were recently featured in the London Free Press.

Mitch Brogan is no longer bound to a wheelchair with the help of his exoskeleton robotic legs.  When a drunk driver hit Mitch Brogan, doctors told him he would never walk again. Now, not only is he back on his feet, he's helping others to do the same.

"You get up and you just have to smile from ear to ear," he said. No, Brogan isn't a miracle worker. He is, however, the owner of the first robotic exoskeleton in Canada. Strapped into the sleek, black, futuristic pair of legs, Brogan, 33, is able to go for a stroll with the flick of a joystick and even walk up stairs...
