Spring Loaded Technology Unveils Its Innovative Levitation™ Knee Brace at the Walk to Fight Arthritis in Halifax

Company Dedicated to Enhancing Strength and Mobility Through Technology Helps Local Man Cross the Finish Line and Sponsors Local Event to Help Fund Arthritis Research

HALIFAX, NS--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2016) - Spring Loaded Technology today announces its sponsorship of The Arthritis Society's Walk to Fight Arthritis on June 5, 2016 at Emera Oval, Halifax Common. During the walk, Bill Horne, a participant with osteoarthritis, will be wearing the company's flagship product, the Levitation™ Knee Brace, in its first public demonstration. Designed to improve mobility for people with a range of knee conditions, the Levitation Knee Brace will help Horne make his way across the finish line in comfort.

"Nearly 4 million Canadians live with arthritis and the debilitating pain that can come with it. That's simply unacceptable. We're proud to be sponsoring The Arthritis Society's Walk to Fight Arthritis and believe that everyone should be able to move without pain, which is exactly why we developed the Levitation Knee Brace," said Chris Cowper-Smith, CEO of Spring Loaded Technology. "Our launch will mark the first time this technology, comparable in strength to powered exoskeletons that can cost upwards of $100,000, is more easily accessible to consumers."

In addition to sponsoring a team at the event, Spring Loaded Technology will offer walk attendees the chance to be one of the first to test out its new bionic Levitation Knee Brace at their tent before the product begins shipping to consumers this September. Guests will also have the opportunity to register for the chance to win 50 percent off the purchase of their own premium Levitation Knee Brace, resulting in over 800 dollars in savings.

"We have seen such an outpouring of support from the community as we prepare for our official launch of the Levitation Knee Brace this Fall, we wanted to make sure that people in the Halifax Regional Municipality had the chance to try it out first," added Cowper-Smith. "The launch of this cutting-edge technology will signal a new era of consumer bionics, enabling augmented strength and mobility for people around the world."

Unlike other braces on the market, the Levitation Knee Brace improves strength, mobility and endurance by storing energy as the leg is bent and returning that energy as the leg is straightened. The brace ($2,380 CAD) is currently available for pre-order on the Spring Loaded Technology website, and will begin shipping to consumers September 2016.
