Atlanta-based Motus Nova announces it has been named the Most Innovative Tech Company of 2019 by the Technology Association of Georgia (TOG).

The award recognizes a Georgia-based technology company for its innovation, financial impact, likelihood of success, and its efforts at spreading awareness of state’s technology initiatives throughout the US and globally.

Motus Nova notes in a media release that it competed against 40 other startups and companies in Georgia and was judged by more than 1,300 prominent C-level executives, entrepreneurs, and academic leaders from around the world in discussions and actions centered on the global trends that are sparking and disrupting the tech community.

Developed in conjunction with the top hospitals in the US, Motus Nova’s patented FDA Class I rehabilitation robotics are used in more than 170 clinics and hospitals, the company notes in the release. Featuring advanced sensors, predictive analytics, and intensive, task-guided video games, these robots are designed to help deliver personalized healthcare rehabilitation for stroke survivors.

Motus Nova’s “active assist” rehabilitation system is engineered to be portable for use as a therapy aid at home. The robotic exoskeleton is guided by artificial intelligence and leverages machine learning to create personalized care and facilitate motor function recovery.

Motus Nova seeks to close the gap in treatment access by placing the Hand and Foot Mentor devices directly in the home, allowing people to take charge of their recovery from the comfort of their home at up to five times faster and a fraction of the cost of conventional physical therapy, the release continues.

“Our mission is to deliver neuro-rehab in every home through robotic exoskeletons guided by AI,” Motus Nova CEO David Wu says.

“Latin for ‘movement anewed,’ Motus Nova envisions a world where survivors of stroke live without impairment. We believe a brain injury or stroke is meant to be overcome and does not define your future,” he adds.
