Special features:

Russia's war against Ukraine has led to a drastic demand for prosthetics. Since the beginning of the war in February 2022, an estimated 20,000 Ukrainians have undergone amputations. The majority are soldiers who lost their arms or legs due to explosive injuries. UNBROKEN enables the swift production and fitting of prosthetics.
