Self Starter of the Week- Joel Gibbard

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

June of this year was our Bristol startup month during which we came across loads of brilliant, innovative, passionate people…but one of our favorites was Joel Gibbard.

Joel is the brains and passion behind the groundbreaking ‘Open Hand Project’ which aims to make robotic prosthetic hands more accessible to amputees. Joel is something of an expert when it comes to robotics - a skill which he has teamed up with innovative 3D printing technology to create amazing hand prosthetics at up to 100x less cost than their traditionally manufactured counterparts. What's more Joel is dedicated to ensuring that Open Hand Project operates for the benefit of those who need its products…and not shareholders hungry for a profit! He gets a big thumbs up from us, check out The Open Hand Project and see the great work that he is doing!
