Meet the Hero Arm, the world’s first clinically approved 3D-printed bionic arm, with multi-grip functionality and empowering aesthetics. Engineered especially for you, the Hero Arm is a lightweight affordable myoelectric prosthesis for below-elbow amputee adults and children aged eight and above. Using the Open Bionics Hero Arm you can grab, pinch, high-five, fist bump, thumbs-up. Welcome to the future, where disabilities are superpowers.
It’s all thanks to the Hero Arms I am able to teach again! From writing on the school board, to carrying books, children are obsessed with the Hero Arms and always ask me to show how they work. – Bionic Teacher – Kath Tregenna
We’re now offering Star Wars BB-8, Marvel Iron Man and Disney Frozen bionic arm covers for free to limb-different children with every Hero Arm. In Mark Hamill’s words: your limb difference is your very own superpower.
There are an estimated five million upper limb amputees globally. Open Bionics is building and developing the next generation of bionic limbs and turning disabilities into superpowers. Every Hero Arm is custom-built and works by picking up signals from a user’s muscles. We’ve built a bionic arm for optimal comfort and functionality and now with over 50 design options to choose from, no Hero Arm is the same!
Before, I used to hide my limb difference, and would always put my left arm out to shake someone’s hand. Now, the Hero Arm is the first thing that comes out and people love it. – Daniel Cant
