Live Virtual Demo of the Harmony SHR: New Upper Body Robotic Rehabilitation System

HRS Scientific Sessions: Boston Scientific LBCT

During the Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions this week, Boston Scientific announced positive LBCT data underscoring the safety and efficacy of multi-site pacing (MSP) over conventional cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), as well as poster presentations on real-world use of the WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) device and next-generation WATCHMAN FLX LAAC device as alternatives to oral anticoagulation therapy for stroke risk reduction in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation.

Today Harmonic Bionics announced that they will be hosting live virtual demos of the company’s new upper-body robotic rehabilitation system, Harmony SHR. Rehabilitation professionals are invited to participate in the 15-minute demonstrations that will include an overview of the exoskeleton and how it works followed by a Q&A session with the company’s Product Director.

Harmony SHR works with a patient’s scapulohumeral rhythm (SHR) to enable natural, comprehensive therapy for both arms. When combined with Harmony SHR’s Weight Support mode, this unique shoulder design may allow for earlier initiation of post-stroke therapy.

Harmony SHR’s Preprogrammed Exercises promotes functional treatment through patient-specific movements that can enable an increased number of repetitions per session without increasing the therapist’s physical burden.  As the only rehabilitation exoskeleton with Bilateral Sync Therapy, Harmony SHR enables intent-based therapy by registering healthy arm movements and synchronizing that motion onto the stroke-affected side.

“We are excited to show Harmony SHR’s unique design and to hear feedback from the rehabilitation community on how it may help patient recovery through enabling early intervention, increasing intensity and employing patient-specific intent-based therapy,” said Harmonic Bionics CEO Christopher Prentice.  “Our aim with robotics in rehabilitation is to provide programmable, customized exercises that can help reduce the physical burden on therapists while improving the quality and efficiency of the therapy.  We believe the future of rehabilitation lies in technologies, like Harmony SHR, that increase access by facilitating more community-based therapy and home-based therapy.”
