A Turkish biomedical company which produces micro-controlled above knee prosthesis is looking for distributors in Europe. The company is looking for partners who will provide sales and marketing facilities in Europe.
The Turkish medical devises manufacturer company has set up with government research and development support in 2013. The company develops many R&D and innovation projects in the field of smart prosthesis, 3D metal printers and automation systems in medical controlling. The main product of the company is micro controlled (swing and stance phases) knee prosthesis. While developing the product, human walking has been detected with fast camera technology which can shoot 10000 fps. After observing walking behaviors of healthy people all combinations of human leg behavior has been detected. With those analyses, the product is finally designed according to walking behaviors of a healthy person. The company also designs and develops micro controlled knee prosthesis with scientific fundamentals. After the successful R&D and designing work, this new smart prosthesis needs to be commercialize in EU market. At this stage, the company is looking for long term partnership like distribution agreement which provides sales and marketing opportunities.
Innovations and advantages
Micro controlled above knee prosthesis is lighter than other products which are already on the market. The product can move after the end of battery. Other specific advantages of the product are; carbon fibre body, titanium alloy joints, micro controlled and hydraulic system, 12 sensors and precision sensing, micro controlled extension and flexion modes, compatibly with person until 150 kg weight.
