Tibion Bionic Leg

Tibion, a venture backed robotics technology company, has introduced the Tibion Bionic Leg: a wearable lower limb robotic trainer activated by the patient’s intent to move. The Tibion Bionic Leg is designed to strengthen stance, improve gait, and enhance active motor learning. It helps patients participate more actively in standard sit-to-stand, overground walking, and stair-climbing exercises while also helping to prevent falls and other rehabilitation-related injuries. The device is triggered by a sensor in the foot that requires patients to shift weight to the affected limb before it will engage and assist the user in standing.
