Bionik Laboratories Corp has delivered two of its InMotion ARM robotic systems to The Transitional Learning Center (TLC) as part of its new rental financing option.

The robotic systems will be used at the TLC facilities in Galveston and Lubbock, Texas.

Bionik’s rental financing option offers healthcare providers access to its rehabilitation products on a rental basis. Through an agreement with Bionik, TLC will pay a monthly rental fee to utilize the two InMotion ARM systems, spreading the cost over an extended period of time.

“Bionik’s InMotion ARM system advances our mission of treatment and rehabilitation by providing a new option for survivors of brain injury throughout the Galveston and Lubbock regions. We could not be more excited to be making this innovative technology available to our patients,” says Steve Takacs, president and CEO, The Transitional Learning Center, in a media release.

“This is the second healthcare institution to bring our leading rehabilitation and assistive robotic technologies to their patients via our rental program,” states Dr Eric Dusseux, chief executive officer of Toronto-based Bionik Laboratories.

“This partnership is another positive step for Bionik as we reach sales agreements in regional facilities across the US through our rental option, which in turn shortens our sales cycle by providing financial flexibility to our customers,” he adds.

The InMotion ARM is engineered to help stroke survivors and those with other neurological conditions regain arm movement by training shoulder protraction/retraction, flexion/extension, abduction/adduction, internal/external rotation and elbow flexion/extension.

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