Boosting Prosthetic Adoption with Vulcan's Hand Prosthesis

High-tech prosthetic arms have the power to transform lives by providing more mobility, independence, therefore a better quality of life.

However, there are certain reasons that make people hesitant to use them. In this blog post, we will explore why some people abandon high-tech prosthetics and offer solutions to address their concerns.

1. Common Reasons for Abandoning High-Tech Prosthetics

1.1 Complexity and Difficulty of Use

One common reason individuals abandon high-tech prosthetics is the perceived complexity and difficulty of use. Many people believe that these advanced devices are only suitable for those who are technologically savvy or highly educated. That’s why Vulcan recognizes the importance of user-friendly interfaces and intuitive controls.

The mechanism of use, featuring an intuitive grasp-and-release functionality, is easy to understand and operate. Vulcan simplifies every step as much as possible so users from different backgrounds can comfortably use the Vulcan hands.

1.2 High-Tech Prosthetics are Only for the Elite 

Another common thought is that high-tech prosthetics are only accessible to the elite due to their high cost, especially with bionic hands. While it is true that some advanced prosthetic devices can be expensive, Vulcan is committed to making these life-changing solutions more affordable and accessible to a broader range of individuals.

By offering a range of pricing options, Vulcan ensures that individuals can find a prosthetic solution that suits their budget. It is crucial to consider the long-term value and the potential for quality of life that these prosthetics bring.

1.3 Maintenance and Durability

Concerns regarding the maintenance and durability of high-tech prosthetics often contribute to their abandonment. Vulcan understands the importance of reliable and durable prosthetic solutions.

Vulcan is committed to providing not only cutting-edge technology but also excellent support. Users can rely on the Vulcan app to access assistance and troubleshooting whenever needed. Additionally, regular maintenance is crucial for ensuring the longevity of the prosthetic.

High-tech prosthetics have the power to break through the physical and psychological limitations often associated with limb loss.

This physical empowerment contributes to a more inclusive society that recognizes and values the contributions of all individuals, regardless of their physical abilities.
