… The Tibion Bionic Leg won the 2013 IERA (Invention and Entrepreneurship Award in Robotics and Automation) Prize at the recent ICRA Conference in Karlsruhe, Germany.

… The device is not a prosthesis (artificial limb), or a device a patient wears indefinitely. It is a robotic aid worn during therapy sessions over weeks or months, until the patient recovers their gait so they can walk without it.
… Previous winners of the IERA award include the Kiva robot, the exoskeleton HAL by Cyberdyne, the Aldebaran NAO robot and the UR5 and UR10 robots from Universal Robots.
… Tibion was recently acquired by AlterG, a rehab products company.
