Repurposing plastic from the sea to lift peoples lifes providing prosthesis


BioMec produces high performance prosthesis based on plastic collected from the oceans, aimed to increase access to artificial limbs at reasonable prices, using a technology that increases compatibility between the residual limb and prosthesis creating comfort and consuming 90% less time, while recycling plastic wastes in the ocean.

We improve peoples lives so they can feel and experience things that would otherwise be challenging without a well designed prosthesis, giving them confidence and productivity.

BioMec believe in climate change, recycling and harmony with nature by re-purposing harmful plastic materials to lift peoples lifes providing biomechanics solutions for biomedical engineering
