Our Bionic Family

Each child who receives a bionic arm becomes a part of our Limbitless family. Our bionic kids and their families are always the core of our mission.

20+

We have delivered over 20 arms to bionic kids and teens. We could not have done it without the generous support of our donors and followers! Each bionic arm has a lasting impact on the recipient.

Their personalized bionic arm transforms everyday life and instills in them the confidence to help other kids in the limb difference community. Our bionic kids have helped us change the conversation surrounding limb difference and carry out our message of inclusivity.

If you or your child have a limb difference and are interested in being considered for a clinical trial, submit your information on the trial page.

What are people saying about Limbitless?

Reviewer Zachary

“A few years ago I met Albert Manero and his team from Limbitless Solutions at UCF. They had developed 3D-printed arms for some kids and one just for me. They also designed one after my favorite superhero, Spider-Man, look how cool it is! I started throwing water bottles around the lab and shaking hands with my new arm. I even found out I could pick up little things like an orange or a bad guy for Spider-Man to capture. Now I could even ride my bike without my back getting sore. I also noticed that people stopped asking me ‘What happened to your arm?’ and started asking me ‘Where did I get my cool arm?’ I'm so thankful for this gift.”

- Zachary Pamboukas, Bionic Kid

Reviewer Annika

“[My Bionic Arm is] kind of like a Hawaiian-ish kind of deal I was going for and I just think it's really pretty. I can wear it outside and a lot of people will stare at me and like it won't be like, ‘What is that…?’, or they'll be like, ‘Oh my gosh, it's so pretty!’ kind of thing or ‘Where'd you get it?’ and ‘Where can I get one?’"

- Annika Emmert, Bionic Kid

Reviewer Shaholly

“I am so grateful for my fashionable and functional 3D prosthetic. This is the lightest, most easily maneuverable prosthesis I've ever had; no to mention the most stylish! If you have struggled with other designs, try this one! You'll love it.”

- Shaholly Ayers, Bionic Adult, Fashion Model
