COVVI Partners With Swedish Researchers To Achieve Osseointegration
On Monday 18th September, our Clinical Specialist, Kameron Maxwell, travelled to Gothenburg in Sweden to collaborate with esteemed researchers at the Center for Bionics & Pain Research (CBPR). This visit started with Kameron providing introductory certification clinical training on the COVVI Hand to the specialist upper limb prosthetics team, and information was later exchanged on the latest advancements in osseointegration, implanted electrodes and sensory feedback.
The next day, an expert patient – who was the first to undergo the osseointegration and implanted electrodes procedure – visited the team at the CBPR to be installed with the latest offering from COVVI. From the moment he was fitted with the new device, he was able to immediately notice the difference in strength, speed and responsiveness that came as a result of the osseointegration and newer technology in the COVVI Hand. He is currently training to compete at the next Cybathlon competition in October 2024, and during his sessions was able to complete a trial run of tasks outlined by the Cybathlon competition successfully, and in record time too!
The whole team at COVVI are looking forward to supporting his progress towards next year’s Cybathlon, and we are excited at the potential that this new research could provide to other patients around the world.
