The system will be released in early 2015, after Barrett achieves full FDA compliance for this 510(k)-exempt device.
Barrett Medical will be a fresh spin-off from Barrett Technology Inc., which designed Proficio for DARPA to help returning veterans recovering from traumatic brain injury (TBI). The rehabilitation prescribed for TBI and stroke are virtually identical in their approach to these brain traumas. Barrett Technology’s flagship product, the WAM arm is listed in the special Millennium Edition of the Guinness Book of Records as being the world’s most advanced robotic arm for its ability to interact directly with humans through subtle force interactions.
The WAM uses unique gearless transmissions that offer extraordinarily high fidelity force control. Underlining the value of these drives, Barrett licensed them to Mako Surgical for its highly-successful FDA-approved surgical robot. The WAM human-interactive robotic arm also leverages Barrett’s Puck servomotor controllers, which are protected by three issued patents and enable the user to experience exceptionally smooth forces. Barrett Technology will license all of the technology and knowhow required to manufacture Proficio.
Barrett collaborates closely with the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, and Braintree Rehabilitation Hospital, and we are grateful for the input from these institutions that helped shape Proficio.
