The Impact

The injection of PKR 180 Million into the circular economy by individuals with disabilities, achieved through the usage of the Bioniks Arm for 2.6 million hours and 21.9 million movement cycles of the arm, is not just a financial milestone but a testament to their essential role in fostering economic inclusivity. This contribution underscores their active participation and entrepreneurial spirit, challenging stereotypes and creating a more diverse marketplace. Beyond the monetary value, this influx signifies a shift toward recognizing the untapped potential within the disability community.

Crucially, these individuals would have been unable to earn and were financially dependent upon others. After rehabilitating them there is a significant sum into the circular economy without the transformative impact of the Bionik Arm. This technological innovation has not only enhanced their mobility but has also become a catalyst for economic empowerment. It has unlocked opportunities that were previously inaccessible, allowing individuals with disabilities to actively contribute to the economy, create employment opportunities, and drive innovation. The financial impact of this symbiotic relationship between technology and individual capability serves as a powerful reminder of the profound changes that can occur when innovation meets inclusivity.

Disability is part of being human. Almost everyone will temporarily or permanently experience disability at some point in their life. An estimated 1.3 billion people-about 16% of the global population-currently experience significant disability. 80% of persons with disabilities live in developing countries, according to the UN Development Program. They are the world's largest minority.
