About Us

Bionic Power’s purpose is to design and develop lower-body smart orthoses that improve quality of life by enhancing personal mobility and walking abilities. 
Bionic Power Inc. is a Canadian, privately held company that has developed and holds IP rights on wearable technology. This technology addresses the rapidly growing market for mobility assistance in patients with knee pathologies and both military and consumer use for endurance enhancement. Our Agilik medical device targets pediatric patients with crouch gait due to various pathologies such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy and other knee-extension-deficiency disorders whose strength and endurance often deteriorate as they get older. Its proprietary technology has been developed through partnerships with and research grants from the Canadian, US and Israeli governments.
