LegWorks is a for-profit social enterprise: our mission is to help people walk again. The overwhelming majority of individuals with lower limb amputations around the world lack access to appropriate and affordable prosthetic technologies, leaving them severely disabled. We have developed a breakthrough artificial knee joint technology, the LCKneeTM. The LCKnee outperforms existing technologies, has been extensively tested, and can be produced at a fraction of the price. The technology and function are impressive enough to capture the interest of customers in both the developed and developing world. LegWorks will sell the LCKnee in a manner that aims to be affordable to all, operating on a global cross-subsidization tiered pricing plan. Our ultimate vision as a company is to develop and supply all components of a complete prosthetic leg solution for amputees around the world, regardless of where they live or their ability to pay.
