Innovative Neurotronics, a Subsidiary of Hanger Orthopedic Group, Earns the 2007 da Vinci Award for the WalkAide System
Date:9/17/2007

Prestigious award honors adaptive and assistive technologies

BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) announced Innovative Neurotronics, a subsidiary of Hanger Orthopedic Group, earned the esteemed da Vinci Award(R) for Adaptive Technologies for its product, the WalkAide(R) System. In the spirit of the 15th century artist and visionary Leonardo da Vinci, the da Vinci Awards, founded by the NMSS, honor outstanding engineering achievements in adaptive and assistive technology that provide solutions to accessibility issues for people with disabilities.

"The significance of this prestigious honor is magnified because it's bestowed upon us by a national organization that represents many of our patients, people living with multiple sclerosis," President of Innovative Neurotronics Jeff Martin said. "Validation of the efficacy and importance of the WalkAide by our patients and their advocates motivates and inspires us to continue on our mission of restoring functionality to those with neuromuscular impairment."

According to the NMSS, the recognition drives the marketplace to stimulate investment in and development of further creative advances, ultimately enabling everyone to participate and contribute in all aspects of society.

"Having struggled with MS walking-related limitations for 17 years, I was thrilled to read about WalkAide," said Ann Serafin, a member of the da Vinci Awards Committee and the National MS Society Advocacy Committee. "To paraphrase a famous quotation -- one small step for a woman, one giant leap for persons with MS."

Presented by General Motors, and chaired by Chet Huber, President of OnStar Corporation, the 2007 da Vinci Awards presentation ceremony will be held at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Dearborn, MI, on Friday, September 28, 2007. Funds raised through these awards support the NMSS in their continuing efforts to aid those affected by multiple sclerosis.
