Revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $4.4 million, an increase of 128% compared with the third quarter of 2020. Growth was driven by an increase in the number of revenue units and a higher average selling price. Myomo recognized revenue on 102 units in the third quarter of 2021, an increase of 100% compared with the third quarter of 2020. Year-to-date revenue of $9.8 million was up 159% compared with the same period a year ago.
Gross margin for the third quarter of 2021 was 75%, compared with 56% for the third quarter of 2020. Margin expansion primarily reflects a higher average selling price and improved fixed cost coverage resulting from higher unit volume. The Company delivered 108 units to patients in the third quarter. Year-to-date gross margin was 73%, compared with 58% in the year-ago period.
Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2021 were $5.3 million, an increase of 47% compared with the third quarter of 2020. This increase was driven by higher clinical and reimbursement headcount and higher advertising costs to generate more leads and additions to the pipeline. Operating expenses for the first nine months of 2021 were $14.8 million, an increase of 34% compared with the same period a year ago.
Operating loss for the third quarter of 2021 decreased to $2.0 million from $2.5 million for the third quarter of 2020. Net loss for the third quarter of 2021 was $2.1 million, or $0.36 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.70 per share, for the third quarter of 2020. Net loss available to common stockholders for the first nine months of 2021 was $7.6 million, or $1.38 per share, compared with $10.5 million, or $3.63 per share, for the comparable period in 2020. Net loss available to common stockholders for the first nine months of 2020 included a deemed dividend of $0.7 million related to the repricing of certain warrants.
Adjusted EBITDA1 for the third quarter of 2021 was negative $1.7 million, compared with negative $2.3 million for the third quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2021 was negative $6.7 million, compared with negative $8.3 million for the same period a year ago. A reconciliation of GAAP net loss to this non-GAAP financial measure appears below.
Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2021 were $12.6 million. Cash used in operating activities was $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2021. The Company continues to believe its existing cash is sufficient to fund operations for at least the next 12 months.
“While we expect to report strong year-over-year revenue growth for 2021, we face some short-term challenges in the fourth quarter. Although there are a record number of units in backlog, a temporary labor shortage at one of our subcontractors constrained capacity and deliveries in the early part of the quarter,” said Mr. Gudonis. “Capacity at that subcontractor has returned to nearly normal, but it will be difficult to make up all the delayed shipments by the end of the year. Therefore, those deliveries and associated revenue may be realized in early 2022. In addition, we are appealing a number of recent claim denials after receipt of a pre-authorization and delivery to the patient. As a result of these factors, it is difficult to forecast revenue for the fourth quarter.”
