CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & CHARDON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Myomo, Inc. (NYSE American: MYO) (“Myomo” or the “Company”), a commercial stage medical robotics company, and Geauga Rehabilitation Engineering (GRE) have announced a series of free screening days to be held at the offices of GRE and its local partners near Cleveland, Detroit, Columbus and 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.
Myomo manufactures MyoPro and GRE is one of the Company’s regional Centers of Excellence (COE) located across the country that fit and deliver the device to patients.
“MyoPro braces are meeting an unmet need, and many patients are excited to learn how this life-changing product can help them,” said Myomo Chairman and CEO Paul R. Gudonis. “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, said “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.”
Patients interested in trying a MyoPro at one of these screening days may register online for a session near them:
