The GripAble Pro was designed to help therapists serve more patients more efficiently in neurological rehabilitation, pediatrics, hand therapy and other applications.
The device connects to a tablet app and tracks grip and release, wrist flexion and extension, pronation and supination, radial and ulnar deviation, overall strength, repetitions and training time. GripAble said its technology platform lets therapists work with patients in person or remotely, and offers better outcomes with interactive activities for motivating patients, real-time biofeedback and rehab progress tracking.
London-based GripAble said its product is used at more than 350 healthcare and rehabilitation locations worldwide, and that it plans to develop and expand its physical and cognitive rehabilitation platform.
“We are excited about the opportunity to expand our portfolio with an innovative rehabilitation technology,” Medline VP of Therapy and Rehabilitation Brian Garner said yesterday in a news release. “Gathering objective and measurable progress is more important than ever. GripAble provides an interactive environment that makes rehabilitation fun while tracking performance.”
Northfield, Illinois-based Medline is the sixth-largest medical technology industry company in the world with more than $17 billion in annual revenue and 28,000 employees, according to Medical Design & Outsourcing’s latest Big 100 ranking.
