Cyborgs (cybernetic organisms) are beings with organic and biomechatronic body parts. The concept first appeared 60 years ago...but only now it has the potential to take-off.
One startup in Vietnam aims to bring the future into the present. They improve lives among persons without complete arms or legs with their cyborg-like technology. What they work on has potential where strength can or should be augmented. For starters, is geriatrics; or people challenged by Cerebral Palsy; or persons with motor-challenged conditions.
Vulcan Augmetics, one of eleven startups in VSV Accelerator's 2019 cohort, has a go-to-market product that addresses challenges among persons absent of limbs. The company is poised to disrupt mainstream prosthetic solutions; and, long term, to create a wide-open market addressing augmentation of human motor movement via exoskeletal gear.
We have a good feeling what Vulcan is working on will become common in the not-to-distant future.
