Victoria Hand Project provides prosthetic arms to amputees in-need, worldwide. Receiving a Victoria Hand is transformative, helping recipients regain independence, hope, and opportunities to live happier and more fulfilling lives.
WHERE WE ARE
We provide equipment, training, and support to local healthcare providers, laying the groundwork for sustainable, on-going care. Our Partners provide the clinical expertise; we provide the prosthesis. Together we offer a complete service that supports the amputee and their community.
VAST NEED FOR CARE
A range of causes result in alarming rates of amputations worldwide – armed conflict, accident, disease, and lack of basic public health. Access to prosthetic care and assistance can be challenging and expensive. Currently, an estimated 2.3 million people are in desperate need of a prosthetic arm. Limb loss can lead to a loss of independence and ability to work, and is also often exacerbated by profound psychological trauma and degradation of a person’s dignity and social status.
By harnessing the power of 3D printing technology combined with traditional, tried-and-true methods familiar to local clinicians, our prosthetic arms are delivered to amputees in-need across the world.
We provide an end-to-end solution, allowing for independent, on-site manufacturing of prosthetic devices and servicing in local clinics. This strengthens existing healthcare systems, expanding the capacity of clinics so they can help more people, faster.
VHP's efforts are best explained through the people they help. Over 200 people worldwide have been fit with a Victoria Hand to date.
