Rex Bionics (AIM:RXB) is the pioneer of the REX Robot that enhances the mobility of wheelchair users and was founded in Auckland, New Zealand by two robotics engineers with first-hand experience of wheelchair users and their needs.
The Company is working with physiotherapists to develop the concept and practice of Robot-Assisted Physiotherapy (RAP). In a session of RAP, REX lifts patients from a sitting position into a robot-supported standing position, allowing them to take part in a set of supported walking and stretching exercises, designed by specialist physiotherapists.
In addition, REX P, for use in the home, enables users to walk and stand with their hands free - providing more work and recreation options. Our vision is to commercialise an all-day use REX P for a target market segment of wheel chair users with a spinal cord injury, who number around 500,000 people in the US and EU alone.
