We know and share that the framework of international cooperation prefer to fund local production because it serves to development and because sure the aim of cooperation is not to finance western countries. We agree.
We start from Italy, patenting new prosthetic devices (carbon fiber) and producing. because of our ethical code and because of a great engineering process we broke down prices. Now we are growing to sell worldwide.
We start with a mission "technology accessible to users" - our company is a profit company but it was founded by an amputee, an engineer and also paralympic athelete.
Now we start to make projects in developing countries, to take there our technology. We "think big", we want to make projects including starting up assempbly plants, orthopedics training, not only sending components.
We went to Haiti, we are starting for Uganda and Rwanda.
Only 5-15% of people of developing countries has access to devices, funds are almost never spent for amputees.
We keep on creating innovations.In a future not so far we will be able to donate a large amount of devices.
In Europe we are working not only for projects to give walking feet but also to promote sport, we want any amputee can go running in the park or also make races as Pistorius.
We would like to create a coalition of amputees in Italy, because - as always - our work start from prople needings and it will be usuful to know more and more people.
...or let us know what do you think about.
