Tibion Corp., which focuses on bionic devices for the mobility impaired, said Wednesday it received a license from the State of California Food & Drug Branch to manufacture medical devices.

Moffett Field-based Tibion has developed the PowerKnee, a wearable bionic device for the leg which “actively and transparently supplements muscle strength,” the company said.

“Tibion has reached another milestone in our goal towards commercializing the PowerKnee,” said Tibion CEO Kern Bhugra. “We are committed to providing high quality products to assist patients dealing with the loss of muscle function.”

The company is privately held.
