Tilly Lockey lost both her hands at age 15 months. But when you watch her videos, you don’t feel any sense of loss. What you see is a bright, happy teenager with unlimited potential.
Much of that is a credit to her and her family. But as she says in this video, having cool bionic arms helps.
The Bionic Revolution is here. It is already improving the lives of those who have lost physical or neurological abilities to accident, disease, or genetic disorders.
Our goal is to educate people about the latest bionic technologies available to them. We’re also trying to build public support for expanded insurance coverage to help pay for these solutions.
