New Device is Helping Patients Make Strides with their Mobility

–News Direct–

For those living with mobility impairments, wheelchairs, walkers and canes are a necessity for everyday life. While technological advancement has completely transformed almost every sector over the last century, innovation in mobility aids has largely remained the same. Recently, Founder and CEO of CIONIC, Jeremiah Robison, as well as Patty Glatfelter, a multiple sclerosis patient whose life has been transformed thanks to the Cionic Neural Sleeve, conducted a satellite media tour to share insights on the Cionic Neural Sleeve that's earned recognition as one of Time's Best Inventions of 2023.

Voted One of Times Best Inventions of 2023, the Cionic Neural Sleeve is Changing the Lives of People with Mobility Impairments

People living with mobility impairments are asking for, and deserve, better tools, harnessing the power of modern technology.

Motivated by his daughter Sofias mobility challenges from cerebral palsy, tech innovator Jeremiah Robison founded CIONIC to harness the technological advances in continuous diagnostics and machine learning to help the mobility impaired not only regain mobility in the moment, but potentially improve it by strengthening and retraining the body over time.

CIONIC is a neurotech company on a mission to superpower the human body to reach its fullest potential. CIONICs vision is a world beyond disability and limitations, enabled by personalized healthcare technology.

The companys premier product, the FDA-cleared Cionic Neural Sleeve, is changing the lives of people with upper motor neuron conditions (multiple sclerosis, stroke, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury and more) drastically increasing their ability to walk, move and balance.

Voted one of Times Best Inventions of 2023, The Cionic Neural Sleeve analyzes, predicts, and augments muscles in the leg to improve walking, updating with each step the wearer takes.

Jeremiah Robison Bio

Jeremiah Robison is the Founder and CEO of CIONIC, an innovative company that builds lightweight and durable bionic clothing driven by powerful algorithms that adapt in real-time to each individual's mobility needs. He started the company in 2018 after his daughter was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and he was frustrated at the lack of effective technology available to help improve her mobility. Four years later, CIONIC introduced the breakthrough, FDA-cleared Cionic Neural Sleeve, the first product to combine sensing, analysis and augmentation into a wearable garment. Prior to CIONIC, Jeremiah spent twenty years at the intersection of data, algorithms, and the human body, driving innovation in sensing and machine learning at Apple, Openwave Systems, Slide, and Jawbone. Jeremiah has a BS and MS in Computer Science from Stanford University.

About Patty Glatfelter

Patty Glatfelter, 69, a Florissant, CO resident who has had multiple sclerosis (MS) for 37 years, has been using the Cionic Neural Sleeve for almost a year now. Patty, a former physical therapist, retired back in 2008 because of her limitations to provide care due to her MS. Before the Cionic Neural Sleeve, she couldnt walk 50 feet and experienced periods of remissions, as well as stages where she relied on a walker, cane, and wheelchair. It was a rollercoaster ride for about eight to ten years. Her doctor even thought that within the first three to five years of her MS diagnosis, she would be in a wheelchair permanently. Her quality of life was limited. She had to cook sitting down and could stand for about 15 minutes before needing a break. She couldnt take socks out of the dryer or go for walks outside of her house on the mountains alone. Ever since she started using the Cionic Neural Sleeve, she instantly saw a difference. She notes that she was astounded by how well [I] was walking. The Cionic Neural Sleeve has restored her ability to do many everyday things, including taking clothes out of the dryer, going for walks, taking vacations, climbing lighthouses and seeing friends and family. She even notes that she is better now than she was ten years ago. She describes the experience as a perfect storm in a good way.
