Ekso Bionics® Launches EksoPulse Cloud-Based Analytics
RICHMOND, Calif., Feb. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:EKSO), a robotic exoskeleton company, today announced the worldwide launch of EksoPulse, an advanced cloud-based information technology platform that enhances the clinician, institutional and patient experience with the Ekso GT™ robotic exoskeleton. EksoPulse operates in conjunction with technologies from leading global companies to support the new system with EksoPulse Analytics.
The new EksoPulse platform technology uniquely allows physical therapists (PTs) to personalize patient care with the Ekso GT. The technology allows PTs to not only capture patient progress during sessions, but to store the therapeutic data in a cloud-based system, to synchronize that data with cellular technology in order to track changes in patient performance and to then make real-time adjustments to care plans. Key features of EksoPulse include enhanced data analytics, cellular data transmission and cloud-based data storage capabilities, which allow a physician or PT to access rehabilitation measures via a secure web-based portal.
“The proprietary EksoPulse technology allows our customers to offer personalized care and rehabilitation for their patients by analyzing each individual’s utilization on the Ekso GT,” commented Thomas Looby, president and chief executive officer of Ekso Bionics. “We are committed to continuous innovation and enhancements in our technology and to positively impacting the well-being of patients.”
EksoPulse is commercially available to rehabilitation centers around the world that are using the newest generation Ekso GT with SmartAssist, a comprehensive gait therapy software. The data from EksoPulse can be reviewed on the portal by users through a PC or Mac and clinicians can access patient information at any time to make informed decisions, which could have a significantly positive impact on patient care and recovery.
"Using EksoPulse lets me objectively track a patient's progress. It saves me time because I know each session's data is accurately documented and the filtering tools make it quick and easy to find an individual's records," commented Antoinette Domingo, PT, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at San Diego State University.
