Myomo Inc announces the addition of six new orthotics and prosthetics (O&P) locations to its Center of Excellence (CoE) program, which recognizes top O&P practices that support the MyoPro line of powered orthoses.

The new locations are: Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda, Calif; Orthocraft, Brooklyn, NY; Cunningham Prosthetic Care, Portland area, Maine; and GRE location in Columbus, Ohio, Cincinnati, and Detroit.

“We launched our Center of Excellence program in order to better support O&P practices who have shown a commitment to patient care by providing the MyoPro device,” says Paul R. Gudonis, Chairman and CEO of Myomo, in a media release.

“Adding these new practices to our CoE roster just four months after launching the program enables us to serve an increasing number of patients across the country who may be able to benefit from the MyoPro orthosis.

O&P locations that are part of the CoE program participate in joint marketing efforts and receive training and patient support from Myomo. They also partner with physicians and therapists at leading US rehabilitation hospitals, who recommend and prescribe MyoPro as well as train new MyoPro users.

“Our strong relationship with Myomo has translated into exceptional patient outcomes, which have always been our priority,” states Vince Baroni, clinical director for GRE, in the release.

“MyoPro is an innovative device that has benefited dozens of GRE patients, many of whom had lost hope of ever using their paralyzed arm again. The new Myomo CoEs in our organization will now be able to better support such individuals.”
