RACE Team

Touch Bionics' Reimbursement Assistance & Clinical Evaluation (RACE) Team is designed to assist O&P facilities with their reimbursement efforts on the i-LIMB Hand and LIVINGSKIN passive prosthesis. Over the first 12 months of sales of the i-LIMB Hand, Touch Bionics has assembled a wealth of information and understanding on obtaining reimbursement approvals, and the creation of the RACE Team demonstrates the company's willingness to share this knowledge with its clinical customers and partners.

The RACE Team will provide services to practitioners, including a complete packet of up-to-date reimbursement information regarding the i-LIMB Hand and LIVINGSKIN, as well as a new monthly rental program for the hand. The RACE Team will also provide detailed presentation materials, a customized patient evaluation process over the telephone, and billing support with deferred payments on Touch Bionics' products.
