RICHMOND, Calif., April 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:EKSO), a robotic exoskeleton company, announced today that the company received a 2016 Telehealth Award from HealthTechZone.com, a leading healthcare technology news source that is a subsidiary of Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC).  The award, which recognizes vendors with proven success in improving health delivery and management, was granted to the EksoGT™ exoskeleton connected with Vodafone IoT technology.

Ekso Bionics has developed the EksoPulse™ technology, which is an advanced cloud-based platform that uniquely allows physical therapists (PTs) to personalize patient care.   EksoPulse, which is now incorporated into the EksoGT exoskeletons, allows PTs to not only capture patient progress during sessions, but to store the therapeutic data in a shared system, to synchronize that data with cellular technology in order to track changes in patient performance, and to then make customized adjustments to care plans. 

“We are honored to receive this award together with our partner, Vodafone,” shared Thomas Looby, Ekso Bionics’ president and chief executive officer. “Ekso Bionics is at the forefront of exoskeleton technology development - not only is the EksoGT the first exoskeleton approved for stroke and spinal cord injuries above T4, it is now the only device to offer a truly personalized solution for patients rehabilitating from these life-changing injuries,” Looby added.

Vodafone's network and global Internet of Things (IoT) SIM – embedded in each EksoGT exoskeleton suit – ensures reliable communications for diagnostics by capturing and sharing patient data with clinicians. With Vodafone IoT technology, clinicians can now measure how patients are progressing in real time.

“We are very pleased to be recognized by the HealthTechZone Telehealth Awards for our collaboration with Ekso Bionics,” said Ivo Rook, Vodafone’s Group Head of IoT. “Vodafone’s Internet of Things is enabling all types of medical devices to be used anywhere in the world, which is directly affecting the care that patients are receiving. Through our partnership with Ekso Bionics, we are helping to make a positive impact on stroke and spinal cord injury rehabilitation.”

“It is my pleasure to recognize the EksoGT, an innovative solution that earned Ekso Bionics and Vodafone the 2016 Telehealth Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to seeing more innovation from these companies in the future.”
