Our mission

LegBank aims to increase access to affordable, qualitative prosthetic care to (rural) amputees in upcoming economies, starting in Colombia. Often they live in rural areas and have little to no access to prosthetic care. LegBank also aims to scale to other countries, reaching out to amputees that are part of the 30 million people living in low-income countries, with limited or no access to prosthetic provision. LegBank was initiated in June 2014 by social business developers from ProPortion (NL), researchers from Strathclyde University (UK), engineers (Reggs, NL) and clinicians (Hoogstraat, NL). In this website we share with you our innovative technology (products) and a system changing service model, that contributes to the decentralisation of prosthetic care.
