Bioservo Technologies Brings Health Robotics to the Area of Rehabilitation

IISART works to make the use of the latest rehabilitation technology in areas such as robotics and virtual rehabilitation more accessible.

"IISART (The International Industry Society in Advanced Rehabilitation Technology) gives us more opportunities to take part in and contribute to future development of the latest rehabilitation technology," says Tomas Ward, CEO of Bioservo Technologies.


Availability, implementation and knowledge transfer are challenges that public bodies, companies and users alike all face. IISART works to make the use of the latest rehabilitation technology in areas such as robotics and virtual rehabilitation more accessible and to facilitate its use through education, information dissemination and other means. IISART's working groups provide a broad range of expertise.

Tomas continues: "Interest in health robotics and rehabilitation is growing all the time, and robotics as a form of treatment is advancing in many areas around the world, not least here in Europe. Within rehabilitation and assistive aids, the previous boundaries are gradually eroding, to the benefit of society, health care providers and patients. We are facing a paradigm shift where rehabilitation using the latest technology, such as in health robotics, is being extended to both clinics and the home environment and then, where necessary, integrated as a permanent aspect in ADL (Activities of Daily Living) contexts or as work aids. The savings can be seen as a significant gain for society at large in the form of more effective treatment, shorter hospital stays and the opportunity for a more active life. In particular, demographic trends pose new demands on health and social care services, requirements that in part can be solved with the help of new technology".

"Being selected to be part of IISART is, of course, hugely positive for us as a company. We will get to expand our network with new, important contacts, while further solidifying our position as a modern company also active in the area of rehabilitation. Here, we feel we have a unique concept with our SEM technology." concludes Tomas.
