Motus Nova was recognized by the Emory Entrepreneurship Network for leading innovation in technology with its robotic at-home stroke rehab devices.The devices serve as a functional exoskeleton designed for both the hand and the foot and are currently used in over 200 hospitals nationwide for a fraction of the cost of conventional physical rehabilitation.

Approved as an FDA Class I device for direct sales, Motus Nova has further evolved the device by developing the exoskeletons for home use. The ability to utilize the device at home gives users access to additional hours of therapy, which is not easily obtainable. Overall, improving the stroke rehabilitation and recovery process.

“At Motus Nova, we are making great strides towards eliminating barriers of access to healthcare rehabilitation with a low cost home-based robotic exoskeleton. We are grateful to the Emory Entrepreneur Network and The Emory Alumni Association for the recognition,” said David Wu, CEO of Motus Nova.

David graduated from The Goizueta Business School at Emory University in 2011 and is an active member of the alumni community.
