Walter Reed Army Medical Center patients were fit last week with a new bionic lower leg system called the PowerFoot BiOM, announced iWalk Inc., a leader in advanced robotic technology. The BiOM is the only prosthetic system that can actually restore lost muscle function of the foot, ankle and calf for lower leg amputees.
