“We are all driven by the same thing. Developing a prosthetic hand that is not just a little better, but hugely better. For us innovation has never been about creating a piece of new technology - it is all about delivering real-life practicality that improves people’s lives.”

Our history

“We are all driven by the same thing. Developing a prosthetic hand that is not just a little better, but hugely better. For us innovation has never been about creating a piece of new technology - it is all about delivering real-life practicality that improves people’s lives.”

Mat Jury, founder & Product Director

When engineer and inventor Mat Jury broke both of his arms in a mountain bike accident, he was offered a glimpse - albeit a fleeting one - into the everyday challenges faced by amputees. The experience acted as a catalyst for a career change, and ultimately, the creation of the TASKA myoelectric hand.

He started in his garage, working in the evenings and on the weekends as he sought to solve the flexibility and fragility issues which plagued every myoelectric hand on the market at that time. Drawing on insights gained from international experts, clinicians and users, he eventually made the breakthrough, developing the technology behind the TASKA Hand’s flexible palm design.

“We try to see the world through the eyes of others. We work hard every day to improve the quality of life of our users, and to enable them to live independent daily lives.”

David Lovegrove, Head of Design

As the product evolved the team grew, with Mat bringing on a number of engineers and designers with significant international experience. Together, they refined the TASKA Hand until they reached a point where they could apply for a US patent. The application was successful, and the rest is history!

Today, the TASKA Hand has earned a reputation as the most robust myoelectric, multi-articulating hand on the market - and the only waterproof one. It’s won Mat and his team a slew of innovation awards and, most importantly, changed the lives of amputees all over the world.
