ANN ARBOR, Mich., Aug. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Axiobionics, a leading medical device company focused on rehabilitation of patients with physical disabilities, is utilizing electrical stimulation and other innovative devices to provide muscle therapy and pain management solutions. Axiobionics designs products that use the body's natural motion and muscle to its own advantage. These products treat the effects of paralysis such as muscle atrophy, decreased muscle activity and poor circulation that can arise from orthopedic or neurological conditions such spinal cord injury, stroke, brain injury, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. The products help patients live a more fulfilled and productive life.
In addition to its successful line of Wearable Therapy® devices, the company is announcing the launch of Tripleflex, a new category of devices which impart lift and energy to paralyzed limbs to help improve walking in patients with hip, knee and foot drop. Foot drop is a condition in which the foot does not have proper muscle control to lift the foot from the ground when walking. Patients with foot drop are prone to tripping and falling and have a very difficult time walking even short distances. When the entire lower limb is weak, the hip and knee also drop, and the struggle to walk is magnified.
TripleFlex fulfills a need not achieved by orthotics, which typically restrict movement. Instead, TripleFlex puts energy into a patient's step by flexing the hip, knee, and ankle joints to improve the biomechanics of walking.
"We are delighted that so many patients and therapists have taken to Tripleflex this soon after its release. There's a lot of demand for this type of product. We knew that traditional bracing had limitations and that patients wanted something more dynamic. We listen to our patients concerns and address them. Tripleflex is a direct result of meeting patient's needs. It's a new rehab paradigm with so much potential to help people." Philip Muccio, CPO – President and Founder of Axiobionics
