The partnership agreement also provides for additional contributions by Otto Bock of CAN$ 17.5 million, totaling a contribution of CAN$ 30 million over the next 2 1/2 years to be mainly used to bring to market the Neurostep(R) System for the treatment of gait disorders but also to develop neuromodulation products in other indications such as sleep apnea and epilepsy.

I am very proud of that. Having founded Victhom ten years ago, I now wish to pass the torch and to take on new projects. I am leaving confident in Victhom's future, since the Corporation today has the necessary support and resources to pursue its development successfully. I want to thank all the members of Victhom's team, and particularly all the scientists who have been working on the development of the Power Knee and have put their confidence in the scientific direction I have established, as well as the shareholders of the Corporation for their unfailing support throughout those years".
