GaitTronics was founded in 2012 as a spin off from Carleton University’s Advanced Biomechatronics and Locomotion Laboratory located in Ottawa, Canada. The founding team composed of Dr. Richard Beranek (CEO), Dr. Aliasgar Morbi (CTO) and Prof. Mojtaba Ahamadi developed unique expertise in the field of rehabilitation robotics as part of their research at Carleton University. In 2012, we founded GaitTronics to commercialize SoloWalk – a patient handling robot that assists caregivers to mobilize frail patients in acute care and long term care settings.
Since founding the company, we have raised $600,000 in funding primarily to complete product development. Currently we have secured a first customer that will be using SoloWalk with cerebral palsy patients and we will be launching SoloWalk in the U.S. and Canadian markets in 2016. Going forward, GaitTronics aims to leverage the core IP it has developed in human-robot interaction in all aspects of robotic rehabilitation.
