CHICAGO, IL, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ - Touch Bionics, developer of the world's first commercially available bionic hand, today revealed details of two new support programs at the 2008 National Assembly of the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA). Set to commence on November 3, 2008, the company's RACE Team and Partner Program are designed to provide additional support to the growing number of prosthetics clinics that are now offering the i-LIMB Hand to their patients.

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.

"Reimbursement is a big concern for patients and clinics alike and, with the RACE Team, we are addressing this collective challenge head on," said Mark Ford, U.S. sales and marketing director, Touch Bionics. "The RACE Team comprises a combination of experienced full-time staff and contracted consultants to provide the best possible level of reimbursement-related support."
