Growing Pipeline of MyoPro Units in International Markets

Myomo, Inc. (NYSE:MYO) ("Myomo" or the "Company"), a wearable
medical robotics company that offers increased functionality for those
suffering from neurological disorders and upper limb paralysis,
announced today that its Orthotics and Prosthetics (O&P) distribution
partners in Germany and Denmark have successfully obtained their first
reimbursement decisions by insurance payers for the MyoPro orthosis. In
addition, these O&P providers, along with other certified firms in the
UK and Italy, have a growing number of MyoPro units in the reimbursement
process.

Jon Naft, Myomo Vice President and General Manager-International, stated
"We are pleased that our expanded distribution network is beginning to
place orders for the MyoPro braces for their patients and now have a
growing number of MyoPro units from international markets in our
reimbursement pipeline. Over the past six months, we have recruited and
trained O&P clinicians in several EU markets, and like their
counterparts in the US, they are hosting patient screening days to
evaluate patients, filing the necessary insurance documentation, and
obtaining payment approvals to supply the MyoPro to individuals who have
been left with paralyzed arms and hands. We look forward to addressing
the large medical need in Europe with these partners." As a result these
efforts, O&P providers in these countries now have approximately 20
MyoPro units in the reimbursement process, representing a potential
revenue opportunity of more than $500,000.
