Enevra – Improving access to prosthetic care

June 2021:

We were in Uganda!

Our mission is to to give more people access to prosthetic devices

For thousands of amputees in low-income countries, prostheses are too expensive. This leads to missed job opportunities, social exclusion and a reduced quality-of-life.

3D printed prostheses

By utilizing 3D printing combined with our custom hand scan library we can produce customized prostheses at a low price point.

Local

Partnering with local communities in the area of need, we provide them with the necessary hardware and know-how to produce and sell the product on their own.

Customizable

Color and the specific hand model as well as the dimensions of the prosthesis are customized to the amputee’s need.

Realistic Look

By utilizing high-resolution computer-assisted reconstruction from real hand models, we provide results that have a genuine look.

Rapid production

After having taken measurements from the patient it only takes 24 hours to have the prothesis ready for fitting.

Resilient

Up to 10kg of downward force and resistant to rough conditions, such as rain and dirt.

From start to a finished prosthesis:
