It all started in 2014…
The challenge: finding a better solution for below knee amputees.
After travelling the world listening to Amputees and learning from orthopedic technicians, Amparo’s founders noted that without a doubt the most delicate aspect of a prosthesis is the socket, as this component makes direct contact with the stump and, therefore, requires the most customization for each individual amputee. Also, since the amputated limb is constantly changing, especially after surgery, it was clear that a comfortable fit would have to accommodate fluctuations in volume.
Therefore, the Confidence Socket, a completely remoldable solution, was created to support recent amputees in their walking journey. A methodology that redefines prosthetic care and has the potential to change the entire industry.
from project to company…
The Amparo project achieved 1st place in Innovation Showcase (ISHOW), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) (June 2016), Creators Award (Nov 2018), FT/IFC Transformational Business Award (June 2019), Medtec LIVE Startup Contest (April 2021) and was voted Finalist or Semi Finalist in many other great competitions and grant opportunities.
On the 18th of August of 2016 Amparo was officially introduced to the world as a German Company.
