LIMBS International Helps Amputees Get Back on Their Feet
With the World's First Low-Cost, Multi-Axis Prosthetic Knee
Designed for Mass Production
El Paso, TX (November 10th, 2014) – In supporting its mission to restore mobility to millions of amputees around the world, LIMBS International has developed the world’s first low-cost, multi-axis prosthetic knee designed for mass production.
According to the Amputee Coalition of America, the cost of prosthetic limbs, which can range from $5,000 to more than $50,000, is the single most prohibitive factor for many amputees. With this injection-molded knee, LIMBS International aims to reach the mid-range market of amputees who have never before been served. LIMBS International is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing high-quality, low-cost prosthetics around the world.
“It is our mission to help amputees from across the globe get back on their feet,” says Trevor Bergman, Executive Director, LIMBS International. “It is incredibly heartwarming to see the difference we can make in someone’s life by giving them an affordable option for regaining mobility after the traumatic experience of losing a limb.”
