BTE, headquartered in Hanover, Md, announces that the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, is its new global research partner.

Along with the partnership, BTE has gifted the university an Eccentron advanced rehabilitation system and an Evaluator EV2 evaluation system, along with training and support. Both devices are used to assess and treat orthopedic and neuromuscular issues, according to a media release from BTE.

“We have grown from a small Baltimore-based company, to being active in both research and commercial endeavors in over 45 countries around the world,” explains BTE President, Chuck Wetherington, in the release. “So we are very excited to support the University of Maryland’s pursuit of research in rehabilitation science.”

“The state-of-the-art BTE equipment is a wonderful contribution and addition to the advanced rehabilitation research tools used at PTRS,” shares University of Maryland Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science Department Professor and Chair Mark Rogers, PT, PhD, FAPTA, in the release.

“We are truly grateful to BTE for their partnership through this gift, which will provide significant support to our research mission of developing effective physical therapy interventions for improving balance and functional mobility in older adult clinical populations at risk for falling, as well as other applications,” Rogers adds.
