We set out to change how prosthetics are fit, for everyone.

Whether re-defining how prosthetics are fit in developing nations, or bypassing the status quo locally, our fabric-based socket technologies uniquely make a long-lasting socket reachable for those without access to comfortable prosthetics. We design our socket technologies to have real-time customizable adjustability, and to be as comfortable as a socket should be.

Accessible to the world.

Amputees in the furthest reaches of the world now have access to great fitting sockets. Our patent pending Socket-Soft™ fitting software bridges the gap for the underserved amputee population in developing nations who do not have access to prosthetics. Most amputees in the developing world do not have access to trained practitioners or expensive fabrication equipment needed to make conventional sockets. Socket-Soft™ equips and enables locals to successfully fit our socket technology without the need of formal training or expensive fabrication equipment. In conjunction with our modular Socket-less Socket™ technology, the Socket-Soft™ fitting software converts simple limb measurements to defined socket assembly configurations through our sophisticated algorithm-based software.

We are called to care for the poor. Innovation is how we do so in more efficient and effective ways.

Over 30,000,000 amputees live in developing nations where less than 5% have access to prosthetics. Conventional fitting methods are not cost effective, not comfortable, and not practical for meeting amputee needs in developing nations. Our technology uniquely equips those working with amputees to fit our life-changing socket designs and impact lives around the world.

Now an App for Fitting Prosthetics

For well over a hundred years, the process of fitting a prosthetic socket hasn’t changed much. Historically, socket fittings were sculpted from wood. As materials science progressed, prosthetic sockets have become sculpted and fabricated from hard plastics and carbon fiber instead of wood. The human body is dynamic, but conventional sockets remain static and rigid.

The Creative Freedom of Innovation

As a prosthetics research and development company, the culture at Martin Bionics is a blend of creativity, spontaneity and technical proficiency. Martin Bionics founder Jay Martin has a knack for hiring a uniquely talented team, many of which are among the top thinkers, drawing from diverse and creative backgrounds.

Fidele’s Story of Restoration

On some nights, sleep can be elusive. The events of the day replay and rewind in our minds. While most thoughts disappear with each breath, some thoughts slowly intensify like a storm. Instead of growing drowsy and drifting off to sleep, sometimes our whirling thoughts awaken us to an even greater degree. The magnitude of some experiences are recognized only after we’ve had time to reflect upon them. That’s just what happened to Jay Martin, Founder of Martin Bionics, [...]

Meet Julie: World Traveller, Bikini Socket Wearer. I think you’ll like her story.

Julie’s left leg was amputated at the hip disarticulation level in 2014.  She was first fit with a traditional bucket style socket which limited her ability to walk comfortably.  In 2015 she was fit with the Bikini Socket, and since then she has traveled to more than 12 countries around the world – from Malaysia to Santiago.  Julie loves how comfortable the Bikini Socket is to wear – she even recently wore it on her 25 hour flight to [...]
