Tempe, AZ (Vocus/PRWEB) January 16, 2011
Kinetic Muscles, Inc. (http://www.kineticmuscles.com), an innovator of stroke rehabilitation therapies, and Great Wall Medical Holdings, Ltd (“GWMH”) announced they will collaborate to deploy products based on Kinetic Muscles’ leading neurotherapy technologies to the burgeoning Chinese healthcare market.
As the most populous country, China has the largest number of stroke victims in the world with well over 3 million persons suffering stroke each year. A recent study by Columbia University projects the rate of heart disease and stroke in China will increase by up to 73% by 2030. This enormous and growing issue has made stroke rehabilitation a priority under China’s own healthcare reform initiative.
“China represents a tremendous opportunity where novel technologies are being embraced as a means to efficiently expand health care access. The rehabilitation and therapy industry is particularly poised for dramatic growth and we are very pleased to be working with GWMH to address this unmet need” said Grant Farrell, President and CEO of Kinetic Muscles.
“We are excited to be partnering with Kinetic Muscles to provide high quality and affordable stroke rehabilitation products and services to millions of stroke survivors and people with impairment of neuromuscular function in China,” said Dr. Eric Tang, CEO of Great Wall Medical Holdings. “We have identified Kinetic Muscles’ award-wining robotic neuro-rehabilitation products as an ideal platform for deployment in China. They allow affordable, highly-effective, and state-of-the-art rehabilitation services not only at major hospitals and rehabilitation centers, but also in community healthcare centers and patients’ own homes.”
