Bioservo signs distribution agreement with Assistive Innovations for sales of Carbonhand® in the Netherlands

Bioservo signs an agreement for the sale of Carbonhand® with Assistive Innovations BV in the Netherlands, an important market with good knowledge of and great interest in Carbonhand. After the recently completed iHand study, and other previous studies, conducted in the Netherlands, there is a great interest in Carbonhand among patients, clinics and rehabilitation clinics. The agreement gives us access to this important market for Carbonhand.

Founded in 1989, Assistive Innovations BV is part of a group that was the world's first manufacturer of rehabilitation robots, at that time called Manus. In addition to robotics, Assistive Innovations manufactures, sells and customizes arm support systems and robots that help impaired people with severe upper limb impairments. The grip-strengthening glove, Carbonhand, complements the existing product range and creates a complete range of assistive devices aimed at people with upper limb disabilities.

Bioservo has already conducted product and sales training with Carbonhand on site at Assistive Innovations together with representatives from Roessingh Research and Development (RRD) who conducted the clinical studies in the Netherlands. Assistive Innovations has also had the first demonstration units delivered in order to start the sales work.

"We have been evaluating distributors in this important market for a long time and are very pleased to finally sign an agreement with Assistive Innovations, a company with complementary products that we believe are very well positioned to succeed in the Netherlands," says Petter Bäckgren, CEO of Bioservo. says Petter Bäckgren, CEO of Bioservo, and continues: "By establishing a sales channel in the Netherlands, we can take advantage of the interest created by the clinical studies conducted in recent years."
