ANN ARBOR – Jeff Leismer, the CEO of VibeTech, a Wisconsin-based vibration rehabilitation therapy, is now working with Metal Components of Grand Rapids, MI., to build a portable version of its therapeutic device that can help people with leg injuries regain bone and muscle mass.

VibeTech Enterprises LLC has cut a deal with Grand Rapids-based Metal Components to make a strength and mobility-improving medical device for seniors. VibeTech is a NASA spin off company that develops and commercializes state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment incorporating therapeutic vibration.

As part of this arrangement, Metal Components will help VibeTech gain market traction for care for older adults experiencing reduced muscle strength, function, and pain, conditions which dramatically increase the risk of suffering a fall, the leading cause of injury and accidental death in seniors.

The agreement establishes the basis for a long-term collaboration between the two organizations that is expected to traverse multiple products across multiple markets.
