Vulcan Augmetics specializes in the development of affordable, high-performance sensor technology to augment the capabilities of prosthetics. The company’s prosthetics are modular in design, making them more adaptable to the needs of users.
The company is aiming to improve the accessibility of prosthetics in developing countries where amputees remain an underserved demographic. With an estimated 57 million amputees globally, of which over 500,000 reside in Vietnam, Vulcan Augmetics hopes to help them find employment and regain independence through its solutions.
“We are delighted to have received seed funding from Quest Ventures. Together with raiSE, they have demonstrated understanding and empathy for the problem we are solving and the vision to see how our technology can scale. They have been instrumental in securing early pilot programs. Making assistive technology accessible is a global challenge that will impact two billion people by 2030, and a huge opportunity for us to realize the potential of the [physically impaired] community,” said Rafael Masters, co-founder and CEO of Vulcan Augmetics.
