Esper Bionics the first bionic hand that cares. The first prosthesis that improves and gains abilities overtime with you.
Esper Bionics is a hardware startup that develops IoT devices in the field of prosthetics. Now the team is developing a robotic arm with intuitive control - Esper Hand.
The project was invented in 2017. For the first year and a half we studied the market, researched available technology, and looked for a business model. In 2019 they created the first prototype of the arm, which had six grip points and was controlled by a remote control. Then they showed it to Ukrainian prosthetists and improved it, taking feedback into account.
Esper Bionics was founded by Anna Belevantseva, Dmitry Gazda, Igor Ilchenko, and Boris Lobanov. Belevantseva has a background as an operations manager in three client product projects. Gazda is a physician by training, and before Esper Bionics, he managed to build several medium-sized businesses, including the Poparada brand of frameless furniture. At Esper Bionics, Anna is the operations manager, and Dmitriy is the CEO. Igor is chief engineer, and Boris is an embedded engineer.
By the end of 2021, the startup team plans to install 20 prosthetics as part of a beta test. Installations are also planned in the U.S. - now the company is negotiating with several prosthetic clinics. They also plan to look for partners to enter Western markets (U.S., Canada). For the next six months, installations will take place in Ukraine.
Sales are planned to start not only in Ukraine but also in the U.S. and Europe. The next stage is to enter the 20 most populous countries (Brazil, Indonesia, etc.). In developed countries, the price of the prosthesis will be $10,000 to $16,000.
Invite clinics, prosthetic experts and distributors for cooperation. Invite engineers and business experts to augment humanity together.
ML-powered DSP and Data-collective architecture are the foundation of flexibility, sensation, and empathy of Esper devices.
Bioelectronics is one of the most promising areas in technology. The market for bionic prostheses alone will reach $1 billion this year. By 2025, Grand View Research predicts that it will grow to $1.75 billion per year.
Human capacity and abilities are underestimated. We unleash them by devices in orthotics and neurology. To fullfill and prolong life, give extra abilities and eliminate disease.
