Afsal Muttikkal said within a short span of time G Gaiter has proved a most effective tool that helps rehabilitation of individuals who have lost mobility due to various conditions. Genrobotics also secured the Medicall Made in India Innovation 2023 Golden Award for G Gaiter earlier in July this year, Muttikkal added.

Genrobotics is currently collaborating with major hospital chains in India, including Aster, to deploy the G Gaiter robotic gait trainer in their Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation departments.

The technology has the approval of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation, the national regulator for medical devices, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, the statement further said.

Recently, the General Hospital here has become the first government hospital in the country to deploy G Gaiter.

The state government also plans to deploy G Gaiter at its medical college hospitals in Kozhikode, Thrissur and Kottayam.
