B-TEMIA Announces A Medical Breakthrough For Individuals With Limited Walking Endurance

A while back, we wrote about a company called B-TEMIA, who received funding from Revision Eyewear to develop a dermoskeleton mechanism to assist soldiers suffering from musculoskeletal injuries. Recently, B-TEMIA has announced Keeogo, a commercial motorized walking assistive device that was likely developed from that same technology.

Quebec, May 13, 2014 – B-TEMIA Inc. announces today the first public unveiling of Keeogo™ at the Canadian Seating Mobility & More Conference in Toronto.

Keeogo™ is a motorized walking assistive device worn on the lower body that provides individuals with the leg power they need to walk more, better and keep on going throughout their day. Keeogo™ is designed for individuals who have limited walking endurance or mobility issues resulting of muscle weakness, aging in general or due to a number of medical conditions including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease or a cardiovascular condition such as peripheral artery diseases.

“Regaining autonomy in mobility is so critical to an individual’s health and well being. We are excited to unveil Keeogo™ and look forward to helping many Canadians.” comments Mr. Stéphane Bédard, President and CEO of B-TEMIA.

Keeogo™ is being demonstrated this week at booth 103 at the Canadian Seating Mobility & More Conference in Toronto.
