Open Bionic's Samantha Payne: "We turn science fiction into science fact."
There are around 2m hand amputees around the world. Most of them don’t wear a prosthetic limb to help them with daily life. Some have hooks. Very few have access to bionic limbs.
One company is on a mission to change that: Open Bionics.
Meet Open Bionics
We first heard of Open Bionics back in 2015, when it picked up the much lauded James Dyson award.
Since then the robotics startup has made great strides in developing cutting edge affordable robotic devices – specifically the bionic hand.
"We’re making bionic hands lighter, cheaper, and as advanced as state of the art bionics," says Co-founder and COO Samantha Payne, who is this year up for an award at the esteemed Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Awards.
