More than 30 million persons worldwide are amputees with at least 40% children. What’s more chocking is that 70% of them do not have access to prosthetics because it is not available and accessible in most of third world countries and only 10% of them can afford robotic prosthetics because of a highly expensive. Moreover, children need a new limb every 12 months until growth complete. In addition, in most African countries, there are not even a rehabilitation infrastructure for amputees.
We provide children with affordable bionic hands hands that are 3D printed,controlled by muscles, adjustable,looks like their biological hand with the privilege to add removable customization to it. We are also developing a virtual reality-based therapy platform for rehabilitation and training. Finally, we will work with children to improve their skills by coaching them and by connecting them with partners that will help them go further with their dreams and ambitions.
