Miami, April 18, 2016 - eMerge Americas opens at the Miami Beach Convention Center. University of Miami Dr. Robert S. Gailey (left) talks as Jennifer Lopez (wearing prosthesis) demonstrates the ReLoad System, ReLoad stands for Rehabilitative Lower-limb Orthopedic Accommodating feedback device. It's a sensor that is attached to a prosthetic and reacts by warping the music being played on the person's cell phone so that whenever the individual wearing the prosthesis doesn't walk properly the sensor warps the music as a means to warn the patient's gait is not correct. It's like having a physical therapist on their phone so that they're constantly being monitored. This constant monitoring will hopefully keep the patient from developing secondary problems such as artrytis or back pains that come.
