500+ Amputees fit IN low and middle income countries
19 Countries with active users of the All-Terrain Knee
GLOBALLY, THERE IS A LACK OF INNOVATIVE YET AFFORDABLE SOLUTIONS.
90% of amputees do not get access to a prosthetic device in the developing world.
Without a functional prosthesis, amputees are stripped of their ability to walk, restricting their independence, employment potential, and productive participation in the community.
In the developed world, advances in prosthetics are geared towards high end products that are out of reach for many due to lack of coverage by insurance and incredibly high prices.
What Are We Doing?
Our mission is to enable amputees globally to walk with confidence.
We believe mobility is empowerment, and walking is an essential part of interacting in life, being able to work, and taking care of oneself one's family.
We provide an affordable and high-functioning knee that can be easily set up and used.
The LegWorks Mobility Project:
LEGWORKS WORKS TO BUILD PARTNERSHIPS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES TO SUPPLY A SUBSIDIZED PROSTHETIC KNEE TO PEOPLE WHO WOULD USUALLY NOT HAVE ACCESS OR THE FUNDS TO BUY THEIR OWN.
LEGWORKS WAS RECENTLY THRILLED TO BE PART OF A KIVA CROWD-FUNDING PROJECT FOR SOCIAL ENTERPRISES!
HUGE THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!
LegWorks is proud to work with our NGO partners across the globe.
EXCEED WORKS TO TRAIN PEOPLE IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES TO BECOME PROSTHETISTS WHICH ALLOWS BOTH THESE NEWLY TRAINED PROSTHETISTS AND PATIENTS TO BECOME EMPOWERED. EXCEED HAS PROVIDED OVER 5,000 ASSISTIVE DEVICES IN CAMBODIA, SRI LANKA, INDONESIA, PHILIPPINES, AND MYANMAR.
ROMP'S MISSION IS TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE UNDERPRIVILEGED PEOPLE WITH ACCESS TO PROSTHETIC LIMBS SO THEY CAN RETURN TO THEIR COMMUNITIES AS A CONFIDENT AND ABLE CONTRIBUTOR AND WORKER.
SWISSLIMBS WORKS TO EDUCATE PROFESSIONALS AND ORGANIZATIONS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE TECHNOLOGY THEY PROVIDE, IN THE PROSTHETIC INDUSTRY, IS BEING USED TO THE GREATEST ABILITY.
WHILE OUR MISSION IS A SOCIAL ONE, OUR INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS ARE MADE POSSIBLE BY PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY.
WE RELY ON EXTENSIVE SCIENTIFIC INVESTIGATION TO HELP US ENSURE THAT OUR PRODUCTS ARE TRULY GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.
