StarFish Medical is proud to be a silver sponsor of Bionics Engineering Analysis and Research (BEAR) UBC. The goal of BEAR UBC is to generate solutions to replace human physiology, either by prosthesis or implants. Our initial project is to generate a low-cost, rapidly- manufacturable Bionic hand that could be used by individuals who have suffered amputation or congenital birth defects.
Designing a low cost limb will help those in need who would otherwise have difficulty accessing bionic hands due to financial barriers. This will also allow undergraduates to gain experience designing and manufacturing Bionics. More information.
