Life-changing bionic limb technology is now being developed in Australia, with internationally renowned prosthesis expert Professor Max Ortiz Catalan joining the Bionics Institute in Melbourne.
It is estimated more than 57 million people worldwide are living with limb amputation due to traumatic causes1.
Limb loss reduces a person’s ability to perform everyday tasks and has a considerable impact on quality of life.
Current prosthetic limb options are difficult for a patient to control and can cause pain and discomfort.
As a result, many patients choose to limit the time they wear a prosthesis, or to not use one at all.
