CANADIAN EGYPTIAN HAND COMPANY

Egypt

VHP first travelled to Egypt in November 2016 to explore the idea of delivering the VH to amputees in Egypt. A trial was completed with a 13 year old boy at the Zewail City of Science and Technology in Cairo, Egypt. This trial was successful and it was determined there was a need for low-cost prosthetic care in Egypt. This spurred the formation of the Canadian Egyptian Hand Company.
