Bamboo and Flax are remarkable high-tech composite in their micro design. Engineered materials from natural fibers (NFC) are perfectly suited for the use in medical products which make them a viable choice for future green and biomechanical superior prostheses. Thousands of injured people worldwide are waiting for an affordable prosthesis suitable for everyday use. Once you think about natural fibres properly in terms of a serious technical material, it becomes a viable alternative to current prostheses. In hope of a better tomorrow.
