Bionik Laboratories Corp announces the launch of its new generation InMotion Arm interactive robotic system for patients recovering from stroke and other mobility impairments due to neurological conditions.

The new generation InMotion Arm features a modern, smaller, and sleeker industrial design, as well as a redesigned software interface for greater ease of use and reduced training requirements for the clinical staff, according to the company.

“The overall design is very different from before and allows us to be more user friendly for the hospital staff and the patient. It’s now a much more modern, smaller, sleeker robot, which is important because hospital space is not large,” said Michal Prywata, co-founder, chief technology officer and director of Bionik Laboratories, in a media release.

“The interface is also much simpler to use. We wanted it to feel like downloading a new app. Just a few screens of quick instruction, and then the rest is self-explanatory.”

The company has already sold and placed the new generation InMotion Arm system with rehabilitation hospitals including Saint Luke’s South Hospital in Overland Park, Kansas, and Bacharach Institute for Rehabilitation in Pomona, New Jersey.

“Bionik’s InMotion Arm interactive robotic systems enable us to enhance our treatment programs for those suffering from stroke or other neurological injury. They are easy to use for our rehab specialists, and provide an unmatched therapy experience for our patients,” states Reagan Simpson, vice president of Rehabilitation Services, Saint Luke’s South Hospital, in the release.
