South Australian start-up Prohab will launch its new rehabilitation device at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games this month.

The Prohab rehab device connects to standard resistance bands or cables, widely used in physiotherapy, to precisely measure the force applied to the band.

The data is then captured and sent to an app where it can be visualised instantaneously as well as tracked over time.

An Adelaide invention that communicates rehabilitation improvements in real time, helping patients stay on track with treatment, is ready for trial and primed for export.

The device is one of the latest projects to receive support from the State Government’s Medical Technologies Program, delivered through Flinders University’s innovative Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP).
