GripAble signals global expansion with French distributor partnership
We are thrilled to announce our partnership with specialist rehabilitation equipment supplier Kinetec to accelerate expansion into France and a number of international markets.
The GripAble Pro was developed to enable therapists to serve more patients, more efficiently, and deliver better outcomes – face-to-face or remotely – by incorporating technology with manual repetition exercises and treatment. Widely applicable to many caseloads, the GripAble Pro, consisting of the company’s leading hand-held sensor, mobile rehab appand tablet, has been developed with a focus on accessibility to therapist, allowing ease of implementation and scalability across patients and different environments.
With adoption of technology being a common challenge faced by therapists across the world, we emphasise set-up assistance and training for therapists, with ongoing support, which we will continue to deliver through the Kinetec distribution network.
GripAble is already used in more than 350 healthcare and rehabilitation locations worldwide. As part of the agreement, Kinetec will be the distributor of the GripAble Pro product throughout France to therapy providers across the continuum of care.
Dr Paul Rinne, CEO, and co-founder of GripAble, said:
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Kinetec – a specialist distributor of rehabilitation and medical equipment – as we expand into the French market. Our ongoing global expansion is a key part of our strategy and plans for this year. We are pleased that 18 countries and counting are now using the GripAble system, owing to our significant adoption and strong market fit.
“We are looking forward to continuing to grow our digital platform, allowing more patients and therapists to engage, building out our datasets to further improve care delivery. This new partnership underlines our commitment to making effective, gold-standard assessment and training accessible to patients and therapists across the world, from hospital to home.”
Jeremy Carrasco, business development director at Kinetec International, said:
“At Kinetec, we pride ourselves on supplying cutting-edge products for the rehabilitation and therapy space, and so we’re delighted to expand our portfolio with the highly innovative GripAble Pro.”
“The pandemic has highlighted the importance and value of digital technology and remote monitoring capabilities,” Jeremy adds, “and we are seeing a rise in demand for app-powered medtech. The GripAble Pro is a real game-changer for physical rehab and a great example of how true innovation can make a tangible difference to the lives of patients undergoing physical and occupational therapy and their therapists.”
