In November 2016, we traveled to Egypt to explore the idea of delivering our prosthetic there. We teamed up with Zewail City of Science and Technology in Cairo, Egypt and fit a Victoria Hand to a 13 year old boy. This trial proved to a success and demonstrated the need for prosthetic care in Egypt.
In December 2017, we traveled back to Egypt to establish a 3D print center with our partner, the Canadian Egyptian Hand (CEH). This was made possible with the funding received from the Google Impact Challenge Canada. While training local clinicians, 2 new fittings and a follow-up were accomplished. We are confident with our Egyptian team and have plans to fit many more amputees!
