Many amputees don't have the money or resources to receive a proper prosthesis. We're here to try to change that.

The Prosthesis Design team is working to develop a more accessible lower-limb prosthesis in order to provide a more functional option to amputees. This device aims to serve the 98% of the amputee population who have limited access to an affordable and functional device. Everyone is entitled to participate in all activities of daily living without restrictions, and this device will help to improve the quality of life for a greater majority of the amputee population.
