Founded in 2014 by chief executive Joel Gibbard and chief operating officer Samantha Payne, Open Bionics has made a name for itself with the development of sophisticated bionic arms. The company previously raised money from the venture capital arm of Disney and its first commercial product, Hero Arm, has commercial licences with Disney, Marvel and Pixar. With approval from the FDA and CE Marking, Open Bionics has opened registration for its 3D printed Hero Arm to people across the UK with below elbow upper-limb differences. The fully customized 3D printed prosthetics can be made to fit people as young as eight, allowing them to customise their limb to appear like characters from superhero films.
