DRAPER, Utah, June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (FLXT) and Italy-based Idrogenet (http://www.gloreha.com/index.php/en/home-eng) are very pleased to announce the commercialization and launch of "Gloreha® Sinfonia", an advanced, next generation medical rehabilitation technology suite of products. The Flexpoint Bend Sensor® was chosen by Idrogenet as a cornerstone of the innovative, glove-based (wearable), virtual reality system.
According to Mr. Carlo Seneci, Idrogenet Managing Director, "Gloreha is a robotic glove, which already has an established, appreciative market audience of therapists and patients, and is well known for its comfortable and smooth mobilization/operation. With this new product release known as Gloreha® Sinfonia, which uniquely combines the new software and Flexpoint enhanced sensor gloves, we are dramatically increasing the effectiveness of the system and device. This product release introduces a number of active games, active assisted therapies, bi-manual exercises and other elements. These are truly unique features which incorporate industry leading "best practices" to guide and improve the patients' recovery."
The Gloreha® suite is comprised of a number of integrated and complimentary product offerings – The Gloreha® Hand Rehabilitation Glove, Sinfonia, DAS – Dynamic Arm Support, Workstation, and the innovative Virtual Reality Rehabilitation and customized Therapy Management software. Gloreha® Sinfonia was designed to be used by patients of all ages, at all stages of care and deployable in hospitals, physical therapy centres, physician offices, as well as in a patient's home, providing a comprehensive "life cycle" rehabilitation experience expected to increase the efficacy and success of every individual's post trauma care.
After years of product development, the technology was unveiled recently at the world renowned Medica conference in Dusseldorf Germany, where the initial launch phase began. Production Purchase Orders have now been issued and the commercial launch of Gloreha® Sinfonia is underway. Gloreha® solutions are made available through an existing and rapidly growing distributor and dealer network world-wide.
Idrogenet, established in 2004, was born by the will of eleven distinct manufacturing companies of Lumezzane (Brescia district), Italy, whose vision was to change the market of rehabilitation. Idrogenet worked in close cooperation with Universities, research centers, physiatrists, hospitals and rehab centres to develop Gloreha® - an upper limb rehabilitation system.
"Flexpoint is honored to be a part of this exciting, collaborative relationship with Idrogenet. Gloreha® sets a new standard for next-gen, virtual reality enabled technology in the medical rehabilitative space," commented Paul Sexauer, Flexpoint Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "We continue to distinguish ourselves in these ever evolving markets through close client collaboration and as the Bend Sensor® repeatedly differentiates itself competitively because of its adaptability, durability and exceptional product quality," he continued. Flexpoint is in receipt of production orders and expects this relationship to increasingly contribute to the company's success on a quarterly basis in 2016 and for many years to come.
