Producing Real Life-Like Bionic Limbs (Bio-Limbs).
Overview: The Bio-Limbs is an advance mechatronic device that allows users to experience their livelihood as normal as an ordinary person does, with lifelike appearance skin textures and the functionality of a normal human limb. Unlike normal prosthetic limb, the bionic limb allows user to grab things with the artificial fingers, palm, or even poking their noses with the desired fingers.
Funding Required: The Bio-Limbs is currently seeking $2 million or equivalent. These funds will be used to finance the product research and development, and acquisition of manufacturing infrastructure in Q4-2019, creation of marketing and training team to drive the activity by promoting the product to the medical world and welfare agencies in Q1-2020. At the conclusion of these activities, the product expects to in a position to begin rolling out to the public by Q3-2020.
Problem: Current traditional prosthetic limb designs are ugly, scary, and does not feel natural. Limited movements on certain limbs, example an arm or fingers. If a person loses one of his/her arm, the prosthetic arm is static and cannot act as natural as a normal human arm. It only replaces the physical appearance of an arm, but it doesn't function like a normal arm. User cannot grip using the combining movement of fingers and palm, or move the wrist in circular motion. As a result, it is just plain dull and numb and looks like Frankenstein's character.
Solution: Bio-Limbs produces plug and play water-proof bionic prosthetic limbs, with lifelike appearance and functions. Users can replicate the normal movement of an arm as natural way as possible. Whatever a normal human arm can do, the bionic limbs can match it. It will also feel and looks similar like a human skin texture. As for future planned advance model, the bionic arm can feel the heat, cold or pain, i.e. someone pinching the limbs. As a result, by using the lifelike bionic limbs, users feel natural, have more self-confident, higher self-esteem, and can pursue their desired careers just like normal people.
Opportunity: Accidents happens to humans. In severe industrial cases, many lost their fingers, arms, legs or other parts of the body. People that are born handicapped and illness that resulted part of the limbs to be amputated have the chance to live a normal life, minus the feelings of becoming a 'weirdo' due to the splendid architectural design and functionality of the bionic prosthetic limbs. The users are more motivated in achieving their life goals, rather than depending on government or social charity movement. As a result, Bio-Limbs will enhance productivity and improved financial growth of the users.
Competitive Advantage: Bionic Technology, Miniature bionic Components, Real lifelike silicone cover, Plug and play functionality
Business Model: The Bio-Limb derives revenues from the sale of the finished product to customers of government and private health agencies, welfare agencies, NGOs, insurance institutions. We intend to market the product in South East Asia and war torn countries where many victim lost their limbs. We would like to cooperate with NGOs and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs in the near future to reach out to the mass pubic hence spread the wonderful product for good use.
Team: The team consist of Project Director, Medical specialist, Industrial designers, Research and Development Engineers and Programmers, Financial Officer, Marketing, Sales and HR personnel
