We are systems thinkers. We have studied and prototyped a multiple of models for the design, fabrication, and fitting of 3D printed prosthetics and have developed a unique approach based on evidence and experience.
We believe that a prosthetic device is a fundamentally person-centered object that must reflect the wishes, desires, and culture of is wearer in order to truly have positive impact. We design our devices not simply replace limbs, but to recover participation in communities, to rebuild confidence, to rediscover lost activities.
