Our Mission

To change the lives of those around us

Nonspec is committed to designing, developing, and delivering, a low cost and durable prosthetic for developing nations.

Our prosthetic device is based on a novel design which significantly reduce the manufacturing cost, enabling mass production. Our skeleton is designed with interchangeable “off the shelf” components that can be assembled into a prosthetic that is the size our patient needs.  The ability for the device to grow increases its usable life from 6-8 months to up to 4 years in pediatric cases, further decreasing the burden on families.

The problem

 

 

 

The Problem

 

Every year, several hundred thousand amputations are reported due to injury, infection, and disease. In developed nations, the cost of a prosthetic is borne primarily by insurance and government organizations and can easily cost over fifty thousand dollars.

 

In developing nations this kind of expenditure is not an option. Amputation is always a difficult experience, but when it occurs in the life of a child, the loss of a limb can change both the physical and emotional development of the patient – with repercussions that last a lifetime.

 

54 Million amputees worldwide

The majority of which are in developing countries

Many of those patients have access to a clinic

But few patients have access to a specialist

At this time, the University of Massachusetts at Lowell has started a campaign called Hawk Hatch to foster new designs and products coming from the student body. Nonspec was selected to be one of the flagships for this program, and have been given the option to accept tax deductible donations through the university.

As a result of this program we have been able to continue our work over the last few years at a much more rapid pace. To date the funding has been used to help us in purchasing tooling, stock, and machine time for our newest prototypes. Getting our latest round of prototypes to specialists all over the world, thanks to the help of people like you!
