Kinetec expands relationship with GripAble to include the UK
We are delighted to announce the expansion of our partnership with specialist rehabilitation equipment supplier Kinetec, with the company now distributing GripAble in the UK.
Building on our distribution partnership with Kinetec France, the new agreement will help to further strengthen GripAble’s presence in the UK and underlines our commitment to making gold-standard assessment and training accessible to patients and therapists across the world.
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.
With adoption of technology being a common challenge faced by therapists across the world, GripAble emphasises set-up assistance and training for therapists, with ongoing support, which we will continue to deliver through the Kinetec UK distribution network.
GripAble is already used in more than 400 healthcare and rehabilitation locations worldwide. As part of the new agreement, Kinetec will distribute the GripAble Pro product throughout the UK to therapy providers across the continuum of care.
Keeley Ducker of Kinetec UK, said:
“We are excited to begin our partnership with GripAble in the UK, building on the existing partnership with Kinetec in France. By teaming up with GripAble, we’re able to offer patients a unique rehabilitation experience.
“The addition of GripAble to our product portfolio completes and complements our hand therapy range, in providing an interactive device that allows patients to train their grip strength through targeted movements, whilst assessing and measuring their progress.”
“We have seen a significant shift towards use of technology in the therapy market, as clinicians are always looking for more innovative and effective ways to treat their patients.” Keeley added. “Technology that allows clinicians to track their patients’ progress, as well as motivate them through interactive games, helps to encourage patients to engage with their rehab regime and recovery.”
