We are happy to announce that Lindhe Xtend has been awarded the EIC (European Innovation Council) Accelerator Grant for the development project Xtend U.
In fierce competition with many other companies and project in EU, the Xtend U project was selected to receive a 1,65 MEUR grant component with a possibility to receive also a blended finance during the course of the project.
Xtend U is a unique combination of materials that enables the reduction of relative humidity around the stump. This will make a massive difference for users that will get a cooler feeling and reduced risk of chafing, blisters, sores and infections. Xtend U will provide crucial comfort allowing prosthetic users to wear their prosthetics for extended periods of time. The new product expects to reach the market in 2025.
