BIONIK Laboratories Corp, a robotics company focused on providing rehabilitation and assistive technology solutions to individuals with neurological and mobility challenges from hospital to home, announces its participation in the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Conference in San Antonio, Texas from February 2–5, 2022.

At the APTA conference, BIONIK will highlight the InMotion’s ability to deliver intensive therapy to help patients regain motor function following a stroke and other neurological conditions or injuries. While conventional therapy will allow physical therapists to complete about 30-60 movements per session, BIONIK’s InMotion Arm/Hand device will allow clinicians to track up to 1,000 movements per session.

InMotion therapy guides the patient through specific tasks, aiming to improve motor control of the arm and hand by increasing strength, range of motion and coordination, and assisting with the provision of efficient, effective, and intensive sensorimotor therapy.

In addition to the robotic device, the company will also showcase its cloud-based data analytics solution, InMotion Connect, which securely collects patient data from the InMotion robots. The easy-to-use platform features a customized dashboard to review patients’ insights at the clinician’s fingertips.

“APTA hosts the country’s largest physical therapy conference, attended by thousands of physical therapists and potential buyers. Our presence at APTA gives us the opportunity to showcase how our devices can make an immediate impact to patients and facilities. At this conference we’ll be demonstrating our InMotion Arm/Hand to potential buyers and industry professionals in person. We look forward to sharing the benefits of our InMotion device as well as the ongoing training, education and support that we provide for patient results.”

— Richard Russo, Jr, Chief Financial Officer and Interim Chief Executive Office of BIONIK

InMotion Robots were developed according to the principles of motor learning and neuro-plasticity, using AI and measuring the position, the speed and the acceleration of the upper limb 200 times a second. The results center around the company’s emphasis on technology adoption with its partner facilities to ensure successful utilization and patient results.

The InMotion robotic therapy systems are used regularly in more than 15 countries to help stroke survivors and those with other neurological conditions regain movement by training shoulder protraction/retraction, flexion/extension, abduction/adduction, internal/external rotation and elbow flexion/extension.
