Our company is a device manufacturer specializing in alternative prosthesis devices. We are focused on building a partial hand prosthesis system that uses our proprietary actuator technology. Our technology allows for an easier and more comfortable fit to the user. Because the weight is shifted onto the residual limb users are not chafed by the weight. This chafing can cause pressure sores and limb re-amputation meaning additional limb loss. The technology can also scale to any user’s height allowing for a more aesthetically pleasing device for all users.
