Instalimb is a technology start-up company that develops low-cost, high-quality 3D printed prosthetics and orthotics and solutions for its mass-production solutions, with the vision "Create a world where everyone in need can get prosthetics."
Producing prosthetics and orthotics requires skillful technique as craftsmanship and analog manufacturing process that Certified Prosthetists & Orthotists (CPO) have been applying with a huge cost for the equipment. With this reason, for example, a general transtibial (below knee) prosthetic leg is very expensive, ranging from three hundred thousand up to one million yen in estimation. Therefore, it is a serious public concern in the global society that 90 million people in the world, who need prosthetics, cannot afford to purchase one.
This is what exactly pushed us into development of customized mass production solutions, which is the world's first with the integrated automatic design system, composed of AI (machine learning) and 3D printer with 3D CAD software specially programmed for prosthetics and orthotics.
