RICHMOND, Calif., May 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:EKSO), a robotic exoskeleton company, today announced that the company will be presenting and exhibiting at the 6th International Conference of Rehabilitation Medicine and Engineering (CRME 2017), being held in Shanghai, China, on May 20 – 21, 2017.
CRME 2017 is an annual meeting organized by Shanghai Jiao Tong University and the National Rehabilitation Aids Research Center to bring together well-known international experts to discuss the rapid development and collaboration between rehabilitative medicine and the digital age.
Ekso Bionics will present an overview of the company and the clinical benefits of the EksoGT™, a wearable exoskeleton device designed to rehabilitate patients with stroke and spinal cord injuries.
The presentation details are as follows:
|Presentation Title:||Ekso Bionics and the Benefits of Robotic Rehabilitation|
|Date:||Saturday, May 20, 2017|
|Time:||12:15pm – 1:15pm|
|Location:||Dahua Hongqiao Holiday Inn Hotel, Yihua Hall, 2nd Floor|

“We are excited to showcase the EksoGT at this international forum and to present the unique rehabilitation benefits the technology provides,” commented Thomas Looby, Ekso Bionics’ President and Chief Executive Officer. “China has the world’s largest stroke and spinal cord injury patient populations, but faces a shortage of licensed rehabilitation specialists. This, in turn, has created a real need for new technologies, like the EksoGT, to maximize care and improve patient outcomes.”
CRME 2017 attendees are also invited to see a demonstration of the EksoGT and learn more about this innovative technology at the Ekso Bionics booth, #A2.

EksoGT™ is the first exoskeleton cleared by the FDA for use with stroke and spinal cord injuries from L5 to C7. The EksoGT with SmartAssist™ software is the only exoskeleton available for rehabilitation institutions that can provide adaptive amounts of power to either side of the patient’s body, challenging the patient as they progress through their continuum of care. The suit’s patented technology provides the ability to mobilize patients earlier, more frequently and with a greater number of high intensity steps. To date, this device has helped patients take more than 70 million steps in over 130 rehabilitation institutions around the world.
