Tune into the following CNN programs this weekend to see the amazing technology of the BiOM:
Saturday, March 24 at 7:30 a.m. ET “Sanjay Gupta MD”
Sunday, March 25 at 7:30 a.m. ET “Sanjay Gupta MD”
Sunday, March 25 at 2:00 p.m. ET “The Next List with Dr. Sanjay Gupta”
Shawn Brown, SRT Certified and Licensed Prosthetist and Orthotist, has worked closely with the manufacturers in the developmental stages of the BiOM, and was selected to be interviewed by CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, MD because of his expertise in prosthetic advancements. Although we are not 100% certain how much air time Shawn will have in the final program, SRT is very excited to see the BiOM featured on such a prestigious show, and honored to have been a part of the filming experience.
For those of you unfamiliar with this new device, the BiOM is more than just an “upgrade” in prosthetic technology. The BiOM is a bionic lower-leg system that simulates the action of the ankle, Achilles tendon and calf muscles by propelling the amputee upwards and forwards during each walking step. The BiOM will allow an amputee to walk further and faster with less effort over all terrain types while accommodating for real-time terrain changes. Ultimately, the BiOM provides an amputee the opportunity for a higher quality of life.
