Idea Name: limbo
Slogan: a helping hand
Startup Domain: Healthcare
Abstract:
    The idea is to help rehabilitate the upper limb amputees and help them regain their functionality by providing a relatively low cost prosthetic limb with no compromise on quality and performance.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Our idea fulfills the need for amputees which make up more than 2% of our population to regain limb functionality resuming day to day functions and supporting their families as most of them are primary bread winners,mostly male as statistics show, in the military or rural areas.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The people who lose their upper limbs due to disease, trauma or accidents are gonna be the primary beneficiaries of our idea and products. The amount of potential amuptees that would benefit from our product would range from 1 - 1.5 million.
How will the solution works
    The prosthesis works with a surface EMG sensor to capture the EMG signals of the amuptees arm. The signal undergoes electronic and digital processing to remove the unwanted noise and then the clean signal is classified and further processed upon by a micro-controller to move the hand/gripper as desired by the amputee. The torque, speed and aesthetic well being of the design are all taken into consideration.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The production market of prosthetics in pakistan lacks healthy competition. Passive prosthesis, 3D printed material and plastic used is a downgrade on quality and functionality. The rest are imported for astronomical prices. Our design is an optimum blend of price and quality.
