"MC10, which focuses on wearable sensor systems geared toward tracking personalized health, is teaming up with the rehabilitation research hospital Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The goal: to collaborate on the development of new approaches to neurodegenerative and motion-related disability therapy.
“MC10’s technology has the potential to reshape rehabilitation,” said Dr. David Zembower, executive director of innovation and clinical research at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, in a statement. “We look forward to developing new therapies and solutions with BioStampRC sensors, furthering our goal of improving treatment and recovery, and of advancing human ability.”
The research partnership will focus on identifying unmet clinical and therapeutic needs in the physical medicine and rehabilitation field. Initially, the target will be injuries that result in motion or biomechanics-related disabilities -- especially stroke, traumatic brain injury, incomplete spinal cord injury, and various neurodegenerative diseases."
