ABOUT Origins

Universal Prosthetics spun out of a class project at the University of Iowa  after the Spring 2016 semester. Casey, Assistant Secretary of Iowa City's chapter of Rotary International, was enlightened about the amputee epidemic in India from one of his fellow Rotarians. Michael worked at a limb salvage clinic prior to medical school, where he gained an appreciation of how amputation affects people worldwide. Together they influenced Universal Prosthetics to consider the estimated 34 million amputees in developing nations who are still in need of an artificial leg as we chose our next direction. Studies by the World Health Organization have reported that developing nations are 40,000 prosthetists shy of meeting that demand.

 

George Daniel, a passionate biomedical engineering graduate from the University of Iowa, met Casey and Michael through the Iowa Medical Innovations Group his senior year. He latched on to their vision, and together, the team became committed to improving global health.
