‘ReMotion’ Prosthetic Knee

Engineer Krista Donaldson is the CEO of D-Rev, a company that produces the ReMotion knee, an $80 prosthetic device for above-knee amputees, many of whom earn less than $4 a day. This design has the “best-in-class technology” and costs less than other prosthetics on the market.

“Over 9 million above-knee amputees in the developing world do not have access to the prosthetics they need to live more healthy, productive lives. By designing a low-cost, high-quality prosthetic knee that can be delivered through an economically self-sustaining distribution model, D-Rev aims to increase the availability and accessibility of quality prosthetics in the developing world.”
