PRODUCT MAGIC

The underlying magic that makes Vulcan Augmetics different from other providers of prosthetic limbs is our flexible design, custom socket panels, and job-specific attachment modules.
Prosthetics limbs by Vulcan are made with a functional core that can later be designed to become adaptable to various cases of amputees, whether for work or play. This helps reduce the time and cost of production, making it more affordable, even for people with limited budget.

Upgradability

All of the products have one core prosthetic design, allowing for easy flexibility and upgrade tailored to the specific of the users in the future.
By creating one single core product, Vulcan tries to minimize the clutter that users have from owing too many different prosthetic.

Modularity

We create custom socket panels for the core prosthetic part. Each socket is designed specifically to best serve a unique task for the user.
Plug in different sockets and transform into an actual super human, doing things more effectively and efficiently.

Affordability

Not many prosthetic out there is financially accessible, especially in developing countries. Though progress is being made, why wait?
With 3D printing and of open-source software, we make the process of obtaining a bionic arm faster and cheaper.

USER

Duoc got sick at 6 months old. His intestines turned, twisted, creating the pain that would tear up even the strongest of adults. Rushed to the hospital, he was treated for volvulus.

He woke up, stomach and intestines fine and well, but his left arm was amputated.

But he is never the victim. He never blames the hospital, the doctors, his silly siblings, himself, or life for what have happened.

The founders

Meet the twos that started it all.
RAFAEL MASTERS & AKSHAY SHARMA

“I saw other groups attempting to solve the same problem and felt that the
technology had so much potential that was not being used efficiently and
effectively with the end USER in mind. That is why I founded Vulcan
Augmetics, to make technology work for people, and to help people get the
most out of that technology.”

Rafael Masters (Co-founder & CEO)

“South East Asia has abundant but underutilized resources which makes it a
perfect place to create new product breakthroughs. However the masses still suffer with lack of advanced solutions in the fields of prosthetic. At Vulcan we strive to bridge this very Gap between innovation, resources and needs. ”

Akshay Sharma (Co-founder & CTO)

What is medtech?

These three businesses are redefining the term “job” for people with disabilities. It isn’t simply a job that they do repetitively everyday, but now a career path, providing them with meaningfulness and empowerment.

Building Alita

Alita is an inspiring film. And not for the reasons you might think. If you have seen Alita: Battle Angel, you might have been drawn to the titular hero of the film, and the enemies she fights. With incredible cyber-warrior bodies,  blades in their arms, and plasma coming out of their arms, its certainly understandable[…]
