BISEP focuses on creating new technologies and devices to enhance human performance in sport, exercise, and rehabilitation. BISEP’s first device is a rehabilitative mechanism that attaches an individual’s wheelchair to their walker. The Ambulation Retraining Mobility Mechanism (ARMM) increases the frequency, safety, efficiency and effectiveness of ambulation training in retirement homes, long-term care facilities and any other healthcare facility.
With the official product launch planned for early 2017, the ARMM has already gained support from Innovate Niagara, Brock University, Niagara College, Bridges Community Health Centre as well independent healthcare professionals. BISEP’s future plan include manufacturing the ARMM device in the Niagara Region as well as constructing other novel devices to enhance human performance and efficiency.
