BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY AT CASA COLINA HELPS STROKE PATIENTS WALK AGAIN
Pomona, CA…Imagine technology so advanced that it helps patients who have had a stroke or other neurological impairment to regain mobility and walk again – an ability that these individuals believed to be impossible.

More than 700,000 people suffer a stroke every year, with two-thirds of those individuals surviving and requiring intensive rehabilitation. These stroke and other neurological patients are regaining lost mobility and achieving greater independence thanks to advanced technology just released by Bioness ® Inc. and offered at Casa Colina Centers for Rehabilitation in Pomona, CA. Individuals who have experienced stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and incomplete spinal cord injury are primary candidates for the new technology and are talking about improvements in quality of life as a result of using the Bioness NESS L300™.

Casa Colina patient, Simon Lewis, a stroke survivor from Sherman Oaks, CA, says he is now able to walk without a cane for the first time in 13 years, and the L300 is giving him the confidence to take his driver’s test. Dr. David Patterson, Medical Director of Casa Colina Hospital where Simon received his evaluation and physical therapy, believes that integrating the L300 into its standard of care increases Casa Colina Hospital’s capability to improve patient outcomes. “With this new technology, patients can advance to greater independence in what they do in their home and their community,” says Dr. Patterson.

Casa Colina is among the first in the country and the first in California to offer this breakthrough adjunctive therapy and will serve as a regional assessment site for patients interested in trying out the new device. Please contact Casa Colina Hospital’s Outpatient Center for more information about the use of the L300 or to schedule an evaluation. Call 909/596-7733 or toll-free 800/926-5462, Ext. 3500.

About the NESS L300™.
Central nervous system injuries like stroke often result in foot drop—leading to instability and difficulty walking. The NESS L300™ neuro-rehabilitation system is a major advancement in Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) technology, designed to help patients experiencing foot drop to regain mobility and help “normalize” walking and gait. The L300 uses wireless communication to “talk” to its components, eliminating cumbersome wires and allowing the clinician ability to fine-tune settings while the patient is actually walking. This user-friendly system is appropriate for a broad range of conditions, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and incomplete spinal cord injury. It is being used in hospital, outpatient and home settings.

About Bioness Inc.
California-based Bioness Inc. was formed in 2004 by the Alfred E. Mann, a leading medical device entrepreneur, the Alfred Mann Foundation for Scientific Research, a world leader in medical device technology, and NESS Ltd., a company headquartered in Israel that develops and manufactures neuroprosthetic and rehabilitation systems. Bioness Inc.’s mission is to deliver innovative devices and therapies to the field of physical medicine, taking rehabilitation to new levels of physical independence and productivity. Release of the L300 follows introduction of the NESS H200™, another Bioness technology designed to advance upper extremity rehabilitation.
