Del

FREIBURG, Germany and RICHMOND, Calif., Aug. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- "Villa Beretta" Centro di Riabilitazione, in Costa Masnaga (LC), Italy, has been established as the first Center of Robotic Excellence in Europe by Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc., an industry leader in exoskeleton technology for medical and industrial use. Villa Beretta was one of the first European adopters of state-of-the-art exoskeleton technology for rehabilitation, such as the EksoGT(TM), the first exoskeleton cleared by the U.S. FDA and to receive a CE Mark in Europe for use with stroke and spinal cord injuries from L5 to C7.

Dr. Franco Molteni, Director of Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Villa Beretta, notes, "We look forward to mentoring our peers on using the EksoGT, which is becoming a cornerstone of our rehabilitation program because it allows patients to stand up and walk earlier, which has a tremendous impact on their mood and motivation. As the patient progresses in the rehabilitation process, the EksoGT will adjust to their development and the clinical team have the possibility to easily customize the device after each patient to improve patient outcome with an intelligent supported gait. We strongly believe that sharing our knowledge on this life-changing technology will not only benefit today's patients, but provide new rehabilitation opportunities for tomorrow's patients."

As a Center of Excellence, Villa Beretta is committed to provide peer-to-peer support as a reference site to train other European facilities interested in becoming proficient in innovative approaches to rehabilitation. Villa Beretta will also work with Ekso Bionics and three leading U.S. rehabilitation facilities to aid research and development efforts to advance the use of innovative exoskeleton technology for mobility-impaired patients. In addition, Villa Beretta will gather clinical evidence and measureable results on rehabilitation with EksoGT and create research protocols for proving standard of care for exoskeletons for rehabilitation.

"Villa Beretta is one of our first European customers for the EksoGT, as well as a leader in the rehabilitation community for stroke and spinal cord injuries," said Matthias Stief, president and managing director of Ekso Bionics Europe GmbH. "We're proud to welcome Villa Beretta as one of our Centers of Excellence, who will play an indispensable role in training other European rehabilitation centers who are eager to bring exoskeletons to their facilities so they can help their patients get back on their feet earlier."

LONDON, Jan. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Industry disruptor Robert Wessman, the CEO of rapidly growing generic pharmaceuticals company Alvogen, shares his thoughts on the latest market trends in the new edition of World Finance magazine.

Unsurprisingly, in an era of ever-rising medical costs, a growing number of governmental entities and corporations are now choosing generics over branded pharmaceuticals. For some time, just a handful of big-name organisations dominated this nascent market. But, following its peak in 2015, over-valuations have prompted vulnerability, opening the door for new, more nimble competitors to join and disrupt the market. Among this innovative group of 'next generation' pharmaceutical companies is Reykjavik-based Alvogen. Though it was only established in 2009, this global-facing organisation now boasts an annual t
