1. Nature of the Business
Bionik Laboratories Corp. is a healthcare company focused on improving the quality of life of millions of people with neurological or mobility impairments by combining artificial intelligence and innovative robotics technology to help individuals from hospital to home to regain mobility, enhance autonomy, and regain self-esteem.
The Company uses artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to make rehabilitation methods and processes smarter and more intuitive to deliver greater recovery for patients with neurological or mobility impairments. These technologies allow large amounts of data to be collected and processed in real-time, enabling appropriately challenging and individualized therapy during every treatment session. This is the foundation of the InMotion® therapy. The Company’s rehabilitation therapy robots are built on an artificial intelligence platform, measuring the position, the speed and the acceleration of the patient 200 times per second. The artificial intelligence platform is designed to adapt in real time to the patient’s needs and progress while providing quantifiable feedback of a patient’s progress and performance, in a way that the Company believes a trained clinician cannot.
Based on this foundational work, the Company has two InMotion products currently on the market, which are focused on upper and lower extremity rehabilitation for stroke and other mobility-impaired individuals.
The Company is a global pioneering robotics company focused on providing rehabilitation solutions to individuals with neurological disorders, specializing in designing, developing and commercializing cost-effective physical rehabilitation technologies, prosthetics, and assisted robotic products. The Company strives to innovate and build devices that can rehabilitate and improve an individual’s health, comfort, accessibility, and quality of life through the use of advanced algorithms and sensing technologies that anticipate a user’s every move.
The Company’s principal executive offices are located at 80 Coolidge Hill Road, Watertown, MA 02472 and its Canada address is 483 Bay Street, N105, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5G 2C9.
