Cleveland: Veterans to receive bionic ankle system

The Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center announced that cutting-edge bionic technology, the BiOM, will be made available to select Cleveland Veterans.

The BiOM, designed by iWalk, is the world's first bionic ankle system that utilizes robotics to replicate the muscles and tendons to replace the action of the foot, Achilles tendon and calf muscle.

This advanced prosthetic technology, clinically proven to normalize walking, will provide select Cleveland Veterans with a wide-range of long term medical benefits.
