Please consider making a gift today to help improve daily life for individuals who have lost a limb due to injury or disease. No gift is too small.

The Hopkins Modular Prosthetic Limb is the most capable prosthetic arm in the world, combining high-dexterity robotics with brain control. The device promises to improve life for thousands of people who have lost an arm during military service or traumatic injury, and those with paralysis due to spinal cord injury, ALS, stroke, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s, or other neuro-degenerative diseases.

To move the device out of the lab and into everyday use, your support is needed for continued research, home trials, and development of advanced prototypes.
