To enable mobility in the developing world with compassion, innovation and quality.
Quality is of upmost important to us. For this reason, we don’t just provide a prosthesis, we provide a customized and durable work of art that is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of each patient. We use all new components and materials so that each patient can leave with not only mobility, but also a sense of pride in their new limb. And we are able to provide all this, free to patients and with low material costs to us compared to U.S. prosthetic standards.
We realize, however, that our efforts are short-sighted if we are limited to only what our hands can fabricate. This is why we also value innovation. Currently, we are developing technology that allows us to use an iPad and scanner to capture the shape of a patients limb, make modifications on the computer and have their custom prosthetic socket 3D printed. With multiple printers going around the clock, we could greatly increase efficiency! Find out more about our App – DigiScan here.
Currently, LifEnabled provides free, bi-annual prosthetic clinics at Hospital Shalom in San Benito, Guatemala. These clinics allow us the ability to not only give new prosthetic opportunities to those who otherwise can’t afford it, but it also allows for on-going support and follow-up care to previous patients, especially pediatrics who grow quickly!
