About the Team

Karla Bionics is a spin-off company from the Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia. We developed our prosthesis together with our user to ensure its desirability. We consider the business aspect to ensure its viability. And with an interdisciplinary approach, we ensure the technical feasibility of our prosthesis. We do this to fulfill our life-calling through design and engineering.

The CYBATHLON-Challenges in May 2022 are the first CYBATHLON event Karla Bionics participates in.

About the Device

Panangan Prosthesis Arm is developed with affordability in mind to create a unique solution. A body powered prosthesis, Panangan uses a whippletree mechanism principle to create an intuitive gripping feature. We adapt a running shoe structure to create an adaptive and convenience socket. To improve the user's confidence, we utilise therm-formed Polyvinyl Chloride to create a bionic-like cover.
