Modern, high-quality prostheses are manufactured almost exclusively using composite materials. Composite prostheses offer wearers increased comfort due to the materials excellent light yet extremely durable properties. These advanced properties however come at a high cost, due to the complex and intensive manufacturing process.
steptics uses a patented, automated process to produce carbon fibre composites which significantly reduces the manufacturing costs, making high performance prostheses accessible to amputees worldwide.
This innovative process allows for the individual adjustment of the prostheses’ spring characteristics, while remaining affordable.
