Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Bionik launches its InMotion Arm Robotic System to improve rehabilitation for stroke survivors

Maybe for you?

TORONTO and BOSTON, Feb. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Bionik Laboratories Corp. (OTCQB: BNKL) ("Bionik" or the "Company"), a robotics company focused on providing rehabilitation and assistive technology solutions to individuals with neurological and mobility impairments from hospital to home, today announced the launch of its improved InMotion Arm interactive robotic system for clinical rehabilitation of stroke survivors and those with mobility impairments due to neurological conditions.

The improved new generation InMotion Arm will provide the same innovative active-assisted robotic therapy, but with a new industrial design that is modern, smaller and sleeker. The software interface has been completely redesigned to allow greater ease of use and therefore reduced training requirements for clinical staff.



iMS combines the superior service of Oakworks Medical and advanced manufacturing technology of FAMED Medical Solutions. The goal of iMS, "Connecting Art and Medical Science" goes way beyond product with exceptional CareLink service. Contact us today!


"The overall design is very different from before and allows us to be more user friendly for the hospital staff and the patient. It's now a much more modern, smaller, sleeker robot which is important because hospital space is not large. We need to be able to fit our machines in tighter spaces and be easier to move if needed," said Michal Prywata, co-founder, chief technology officer and director of Bionik Laboratories. "The interface is also much simpler to use. We wanted it to feel like downloading a new app. Just a few screens of quick instruction, and then the rest is self-explanatory. We wanted to ensure our robots are easy to learn and use, and we believe we've accomplished that in this update."

The Company has already sold and placed units of its new generation InMotion Arm system with rehabilitation hospitals including Saint Luke's South Hospital in Overland Park, Kansas and Bacharach Institute for Rehabilitation in Pomona, New Jersey.

"Bionik's InMotion Arm interactive robotic systems enable us to enhance our treatment programs for those suffering from stroke or other neurological injury. They are easy to use for our rehab specialists, and provide an unmatched therapy experience for our patients," said Reagan Simpson, Vice President of Rehabilitation Services, Saint Luke's South Hospital. "We are proud to offer this innovative therapy model to our patients here in the Greater Kansas City area and look forward to a long partnership with Bionik Laboratories as we help people to rebuild strength and mobility in their recovery process."

The Company has also entered into agreement with Cogmedix Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Coghlin Companies, Inc., a world class medical device development and manufacturing company out of Worcester, MA for the production of its new InMotion Arm systems. The initial agreement is for turnkey, compliant manufacturing, with the possibility for increased volume as the Company continues to receive positive feedback on the technology.
