ProsFit Scoops the Visionary Innovation Leadership Award Frost & Sullivan has honored our company with the “2017 Global Custom-fit Prosthetic Solutions for Lower-limb Amputees Visionary Innovation Leadership Award”

This remarkable achievement is a testament to the courage of our pioneering clients, as well as the tenacity and creativity of our team.

ProsFit was founded in 2013 with the vision of “A World where innovation provides limb wearers a choice of affordable, reliable and desirable prosthetic products and services”.
It has already commercialized its innovative software solution for the fitting of bespoke definitive lower limb prosthetic sockets, the most challenging customer-fit devices in the Prosthetics and Orthotics industry. The ProsFit 3D-printed definitive sockets are medically regulated in Europe produced and tested under ISO quality control standards and systems. Its software and product offerings support radically improved professional resource productivity, better user outcomes, improved device designs, and global access to on-line education and training.
As ProsFit expands internationally, it will replicate its European manufacturing operations in other regions and secure the necessary local regulatory approvals. Equally, the company is developing similar innovative solutions for upper limb sockets, and orthotic devices for lower limb, upper limb, upper body and head.
ProsFit has real potential to disrupt the industry, and transform the way that prosthetic and orthotic products and services are delivered. Its 5-year roadmap foresees driving digital transformation in the industry — transitioning its software to a full cloud-based expert system, allowing personalized configuration, self-rehabilitation, and knowledge exchange between limb wearers and professionals via social media and community platforms.
