The Victoria Hand Project produces low-cost, 3D printed upper limb prosthesis that are deployed in countries across the world where access to prosthetic care is difficult and costly. Our prosthesis, the Victoria Hand, has helped amputees regain function to improve their quality of life and increase their access to employment opportunities.
Through international partnerships with healthcare providers and a focus on in-country production, our upper limb prostheses is made accessible to amputees in need.
WHERE WE ARE
Through collaboration with international partners and medical facilities, the Victoria Hand is available in Canada and eight other countries across the world. Our partners provide the clinical expertise; we provide the prosthesis. Together we offer a complete service that supports the amputee and their community.
LIMB LOSS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
Access to prosthetic care and assistance in developing nations can be a difficult and arduous process. Proper medical support plus a functional prosthetic device equals an expensive financial burden that not all amputees can afford. This is especially a concern in countries with a higher prevalence of amputations from violence or medical complications, and reveals a clear need for easy and affordable prosthetic deliverance.
The Victoria Hand Project provides support to amputees in developing nations through cutting edge technology and engineering expertise. We do more than just design a low cost prosthesis – we work with the local community to supply training and technological support, which enables medical professionals with the skills needed to build the Victoria Hand and deliver it to amputees in need.
