Medline has acquired physical therapy and rehabilitation equipment maker NeuroGym Technologies of Ottawa.
NeuroGym’s equipment is designed for people who have had a stroke or other traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, chronic neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, balance issues and/or the need for fall prevention therapy.
The equipment requires the patient to initiate movement, which the company says can help rewire the brain and speed recovery. It includes a sit-to-stand trainer, bungee mobility trainer to re-teach walking and improve balance, a pendulum stepper for lower extremity strength and range of motion, and the “TimTrainer,” which integrates camera-capture technology and interactive gaming to improve motor control and coordination.
