BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bionik Laboratories Corp. (OTCPINK: BNKL), a robotics company providing neurological functional recovery solutions to stroke survivors and others with functional and mobility challenges, offering its technology to therapists directly and offering services to patients in its clinical centers, today announced it has experienced a significant increase in patient volume at its rehabilitation center, Tower Physical Therapy & Rehab, in Clermont, FL.
During the first eight months since the acquisition of the center was finalized, Bionik has more than doubled its patient count, increased revenue, and has seen an increase in the amount of patient hours logged on its InMotion® robotic devices on-site at the clinic, a new offering that has brought more patients in the door for rehabilitation services.
Bionik’s acquisition of the clinic was followed by a rebrand of the facility as a neuro-specialized rehabilitation center that features Bionik’s InMotion® technology and therapy for patients who have suffered stroke, brain and spinal cord injuries. Bionik believes that the increase in patient volume is evidence that the InMotion® technology is a welcome addition to the community where services for stroke recovery care are needed.
Bionik’s fleet of InMotion® robots help patients to regain arm and hand movement. Where conventional therapy alone allows patients to complete 30-60 repetitive movements an hour, the InMotion® devices have patients completing 600 - 1,000 movements an hour. The robotic device assists patients as needed while it measures the position, speed and acceleration to adjust to the patient’s needs during that session. The increase in the number of patient hours logged at Tower Physical Therapy & Rehab, further point to the clinic’s success with asset utilization for the newly installed devices.
“Bionik’s clinic in Florida is part of our long-term vision to build a network of neuro recovery centers. We are committed to providing more accessibility to InMotion® therapy to a greater population of patients and we are encouraged to see the growth in both patient volume and patient use of the InMotion® robots,” said Richard Russo Jr., Chief Executive Officer at Bionik Laboratories.
“We believe the success of our first neuro recovery center in Clermont points to the long-term value for our shareholders as we commence execution on a national roll-out of Bionik branded rehab centers.”
Bionik’s neuro recovery center in Clermont is collecting a significant amount of anonymized patient data that will allow the Bionik team to further explore how the device is supporting the recovery and care of patients while also providing a personalized rehab experience. Through InMotion® Connect, the company’s cloud-connected data analytics platform, clinicians are able to directly monitor a patient’s progress with customizable reports, as well as ongoing support and training for the technology.
