“For us innovation is all about delivering real-life practicality that improves people’s lives.”

Mat Jury, founder & Product Director

Our History

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 every day 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 that plagued every myoelectric hand on the market then. 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.

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

“We try to see the world through the eyes of others.”

David Lovegrove, Head of Design
