Ugani prosthetics

About Us

A social entreprise that wants to give every amputee the right to a decent life by facilitating access to affordable and high-quality prosthetics.

Overview

Getting stuff done

Ugani Prosthetics wants to achieve its goals through scalability and process streamlining of the entire value chain while empowering the local health institutions and communities.

Our Story

Only 5-15% of amputees living in developing countries have a prosthetic.*

Missing a limb means a serious impairment of daily life activities. There are the physical constraints of not being able to walk or grab things, but there is also a social stigma in many countries affecting the patients who suffer from amputation. By offering prosthetic limbs to these patients, we can enable them to live a normal life, walk again, start a business, and be fully accepted in their community.

Ugani Prosthetics produces and sells the prosthetics that we are developing. However, to ensure we offer an attractive solution for our customers, we will re-engineer the entire value chain of prosthetic fittings, while also collaborating with local health and educational institutions to increase the positive impact we can create.

Ugani Prosthetics’ goal is to create an impact on a large scale, by quickly expanding our local manufacturing capabilities, and expanding to different cities and countries with a proven business model.
