Myomo Inc and Geauga Rehabilitation Engineering (GRE) announce a series of free screening days for patients to determine whether they might benefit from use of the MyoPro powered orthosis.

The screenings will be held at the offices of GRE and its local partners on the following days: February 21 (Columbus, Ohio), February 22 (Cleveland), February 23 (Detroit), and February 28 (Cincinnati).

At these events, certified MyoPro specialists will, at no charge, evaluate patients suffering a weakened or paralyzed arm from stroke, brachial plexus injury, or other neuromuscular disease or injury to determine whether the MyoPro powered orthosis might be able to help restore function to that arm, notes a media release from Cambridge, Mass-headquartered medical robotics company Myomo Inc.

“MyoPro braces are meeting an unmet need, and many patients are excited to learn how this life-changing product can help them,” says Myomo Chairman and CEO Paul R. Gudonis, in the release. “Staging these open screening days allows patients to try on a MyoPro so they can see for themselves how it might change their lives.”

Vince Baroni, clinical director of GRE, adds, “We piloted these screening days last month to great reception from patients. Several have already decided, with their doctors, that MyoPro is right for them. We’re excited to continue leveraging this awareness channel.”

Myomo is working with other MyoPro COEs across the country to organize similar screening days in their service areas, the release notes.
