FREMONT, CA: Harmonic Bionics, Inc. recently announced that it would collaborate with Korean-based H Robotics, Inc. to support the US delivery of rebless, a smart rehabilitation system, and the health and wellness category's latest winner CES 2021 Innovation Award.
The rebless is an FDA-registered robotic, upper and lower limb exercise therapy system that provides motion for the elbow, forearm, ankle, and knee joints. Rebless enables passive, active, and active-assisted ranges of motion and exercise with various operating methods so that treatment can be personalized depending on every individual patient's diagnosis and development.
An app manages Rebless downloaded to the cell phone or mobile computer of the patient. In order to administer exercise regimens, monitor, export patient performance, and conduct telemedicine visits, care providers can utilize the rebless Clinic app.
"An aging population and increasing rates of neurological and musculoskeletal disorders could lead to a shortage in access to proper therapy for patients," said H Robotics CEO Dr. Ig-Mo Koo. "We designed rebless to help facilitate teletherapy making it easier to receive care, while its programmability and automation helps deliver the precise repetitions needed for recovery."
"In a time when access to healthcare is a challenge, we are excited to help bring this unique product to the US market," said Harmonic Bionics CEO Christopher Prentice. "We believe rebless meets the quadruple aim of healthcare by addressing outcomes, costs, the clinical experience, and the patient experience in a positive manner. Home therapy assisted by telemedicine can increase access and compliance to needed therapy, leading to better outcomes. rebless has the potential to advance the rehabilitation process and enhance the experience for patients and providers."
By developing smart technology that enables data-driven treatment for neurological and musculoskeletal movement impairments, Harmonic Bionics intends to empower patients and their care providers.
H Robotics designs and distributes state-of-the-art rehabilitation solutions for individuals suffering from stroke complications and other neurological or musculoskeletal disorders, including medical robots and data-driven telemedicine offerings.
