Start-up wins £500k funding for adaptable AI prosthetic

Unhindr, a start-up, has won £500,000 in Innovate UK funding to grow and scale its adaptable AI prosthetic device.

Addressing the issue of inflexible prothesis, Unhindr’s CEO, Ugur Tanriverdi, along with co-founder and chief scientific officer, Fırat Güder, and chief technology officer, Guglielmo Senesi, are developing Roliner, a wearable sleeve that uses an AI algorithm to adapt to a person’s fitting needs throughout the day.

The technology is being developed with a team of amputee advisors to help deliver a comfortable prosthesis and is supported by clinical research led by Dr. Joseph Shalhoub, a vascular surgeon at St Mary’s Hospital and honorary senior lecturer at Imperial College London.
