"IF INTEGRATED CORRECTLY, ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION CAN HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON BUSINESS GROWTH".

- JOEL GIBBARD AND SAMANTHA PAYNE-MBE CEO / MBE COO- OPEN BIONICS

Here at Open Bionics we build medical devices that enhance the human body. Our goal is to democratise the prosthetics industry and make it accessible so that every individual can feel empowered to reach their goals.

It’s critical that the future of robotics evolves with purpose. I believe companies who are attuned to the needs of their communities will be more successful at steering the business in the right direction.

When we first launched the Hero Arm in 2018, we worked closely with our community to make adjustments and improvements that will allow the Hero Arm to be adaptable and handle an array of activities that we knew were important to our users. Since the launch, we’ve had over 11,000 registrations for the interest in the Hero Arm, which for us highlights the global demand for intuitive medical devices. Industry accreditation
together with constant user feedback has put a spotlight on where the product needs to evolve. Now, we hold monthly user talks where the whole company gets a chance to meet the people we have the pleasure of building custom prosthesis for and also it gives us an opportunity to find out how our product is being used for its intended purpose.

If integrated correctly, robotics and automation can have a significant impact on business growth. From the very beginning of Open Bionics, our production line has benefited from having a blend of robotic and human expertise working in unison to design and build our custom products. From 3D printers that deliver precise made-to-measure liners, to automated software that continues to save time and cost for our end users. We know robotics and automation can help a company scale and allow teams to dream bigger.
