Here is a lengthly article on the history of BionX which I found to be quite informative and an interesting read. It will interesting to see if BionX makes some sort of a comeback. I am sure lots of BionX owners would love to see that happen. Among the information found here is how to reprogram the software to allow the motor to provide more speed. That being said I think a person would have to be pretty tech savvy to understand all of this and do reprogramming. Reading thru it I found it over my head.
