Psyonic, a company founded by Dr. Aadeel Akhtar, is revolutionizing the world of prosthetics with their groundbreaking technology. Recently, Dr. Akhtar visieted with Marlo Anderson, the Guru of Geek, to discuss the company’s success and their current crowdfunding campaign.
Psyonic is a company that creates prosthetic limbs with advanced technology that allows for greater control and functionality than ever before. Their prosthetic hands, for example, can be controlled with a patient’s own muscle signals, allowing for natural and intuitive movements.
Dr. Akhtar explains that the inspiration for Psyonic came from his work as a neuroscientist. He saw the limitations of traditional prosthetics and wanted to use his knowledge of the brain to create a more effective solution.
“We realized that there’s a huge gap between what the prosthetics currently available in the market can do and what the human body can do,” Dr. Akhtar says. “So we thought that we could use neuroscience to bridge that gap.”
Psyonic’s technology has already made a significant impact on the lives of those with limb differences. One of their patients, 29-year-old Patrick, lost his arm in a workplace accident. With a Psyonic prosthetic, he is now able to perform tasks like tying his shoes and even playing the guitar.
“I just feel like myself again,” Patrick says in a video on Psyonic’s website. “I feel like I have control again.”
But the impact of Psyonic’s technology could go beyond just helping those with limb differences. Dr. Akhtar believes that their technology could eventually be used to enhance the abilities of able-bodied individuals as well.
“We believe that our technology can be extended to the general population to enhance the functionality of their limbs,” he says. “So it’s not just for people with limb differences, but it can be extended to everyone.”
To further their mission, Psyonic is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on their website. They hope to raise $1 million to fund the development of their next generation of prosthetics, which will include even more advanced technology and greater functionality.
Dr. Akhtar stresses that this funding is crucial to the continued success of Psyonic.
“This funding will allow us to bring our products to market faster,” he says. “It will allow us to do more research and development, and it will allow us to continue to help more people.”
Investing in Psyonic’s crowdfunding campaign not only has the potential for financial return, but it also has the potential to make a real difference in the lives of those with limb differences.
As Dr. Akhtar puts it, “Our mission is to make a difference in people’s lives, and we hope that you’ll join us in that mission.”
In a world where technology is constantly advancing, Psyonic stands out as a company that is using that technology to make a real difference in people’s lives. With their innovative prosthetics and their commitment to helping others, they are truly a company worth investing in.
As Patrick says in the video on Psyonic’s website, “It’s life-changing, honestly. It’s amazing
