At LimbLeap Innovations™, we are dedicated to enhancing the lives of amputees in developing nations by providing them with affordable, high-quality prosthetic solutions. Our focus is on the development of prosthetics that are both aesthetically appealing and functional, catering to the unique needs of adults and children alike. Our approach prioritizes cost-effectiveness and market competitiveness without compromising on quality or performance. The cornerstone of our product line, the V1 prosthetic, is specifically designed for individuals with below-elbow limb differences. Utilizing advanced 3D printing technology, we manufacture custom-fit prosthetics from durable PETG filament, ensuring both comfort and resilience to daily wear and tear. The prosthetic’s design features an arm mount secured with hook-and-loop straps, lined with polyurethane foam for enhanced comfort. Our innovative design sets us apart by incorporating smooth internal channels in the palm area to guide tendons to each finger, significantly reducing friction and facilitating easier maintenance. The V1’s compact electronic system is engineered for efficiency, with finger movements controlled by signals from five forearm-mounted buttons to an Adafruit Feather controller. Powered by a cost-effective, rechargeable USB battery, the V1 prosthetic combines functionality and affordability, making it an ideal solution for our target market. In summary, LimbLeap Innovations™ is at the forefront of delivering accessible, durable, and economical prosthetic technologies, embodying our commitment to improving the quality of life for amputees in resource-limited settings.
