Speakers to Include:
United States Congressman David Jolly, Florida State Representative Kathleen Peters, Alps South CEO Aldo Laghi, General Counsel and Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP attorney Ron Christaldi, Alps South VP of Marketing Kevin McLoone & Navy Veteran and Alps Consultant Jim McElhiney.
After recently winning a 10 year legal battle that threatened to shut down the Pinellas County based international bio-tech company and halted R & D efforts, Alps South is now increasing staff and is ready to launch several industry changing products invented at Alps, that will be demonstrated at this press event including:
i-force – a device fabricated into the prosthesis of new amputees that will communicate via smart-phone app to the user and the Certified Prosthetist, which recommends sock ply management for volume fluctuations the amputees will see throughout the day and over time. Ultimately the i-force reduces/prevents ill-fitting sockets and pressure related complications that are not easy to overcome especially for poor vascular users.
Neural Control Interface– A liner interface that picks up the neural signals at the muscle belly to help intuitively control the prosthesis.
This event is by invitation only. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org at 360 Degrees PR by Tuesday May 6, 2014, if you plan to attend this event, as space is limited.
