Redefining Human


The Ability Hand™ by PSYONIC is an in-market prosthetic hand that offers users faster and more functional mobility at a fraction of the cost. Leveraging proprietary bionic technology breakthroughs, the hand replicates touch sensation for amputees, and is accessible to most Americans with upper limb differences because it is covered by Medicare.

This Reg CF offering is made available through StartEngine Capital, LLC. This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment.

Reasons to Invest

  • PSYONIC’s Ability Hand™ offers those with limb differences the high-performance solution they deserve. We designed our bionic hand to be the fastest, and believe that it is the first of its kind to offer true multi-touch sensitivity (source). For what we believe is the very first time with a commercially available bionic hand, users can feel a vibration from multiple areas of the fingers when they touch an object! 

  • The global market for prosthetics and orthotics is approaching the $2.8 billion mark and has the potential to expand as a population of about 3.5 million people are estimated to potentially experience limb loss by 2050 (source).

  • Prioritizing affordability, PSYONIC has worked diligently to ensure that our products cost less (source) and are covered by Medicare as well as private insurance (source).


Advanced Bionic Technology Made Accessible to All

PSYONIC believes that every individual with a limb difference deserves access to the best available prosthetic devices. Setting out to develop a new kind of bionic hand, our team was founded by an engineer, and sought the expertise of doctors, designers, clinicians, public health experts, and social workers, in order to create technology that would be as accessible as it is innovative. 

The result of these efforts is the Ability Hand™ – an affordable, lightweight, multi-articulated bionic hand, with instant sensory feedback so users can truly feel what they touch.

The Problem & our solution

A Revolutionary Solution to a Long-Standing Need

Despite some advances in mobility technology over the past several decades, many of today’s options still fail to deliver in terms of comfort, agility, and controllability. Many people with a limb difference consider hooks inconvenient (source), while 3D-printed, myoelectric, or multi-articulated devices tend to be costly and lack functionality. These approaches don’t offer the kind of touch feedback that is so important to users.

So we built something better. PSYONIC designed the Ability Hand™ to be lightweight, lightning fast, intuitive, and strong, while also featuring what we believe is the first multi-touch sensing technology of its kind. Using dynamic fingertip sensors, the hand detects pressure and uses vibration to communicate sensation, so that users can actually feel what they are touching and work with even the most delicate objects.

The Market & our traction

From Mobility to The Metaverse

Since launching in September 2021, PSYONIC has made some incredible strides. We received a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation for Small Business Innovation Research (source) as well as positive press from a number of major news organizations. We were even deemed “The World’s Most Badass Prosthetic Arm” by Popular Mechanics in April 2022 (source).

(source & source

The Ability Hand™ has users throughout the United States, and the number of orders we receive grows every year. Besides the prosthetics industry, we believe there is demand for our products in the robotics and tech market – from clients that include Meta and Apptronik, and our goal is to scale to meet these opportunities, while also continuing to advance the field of bionics. 

Why Invest

Invest in Technology that Touches Lives

From its inception, PSYONIC was founded with a mission of redefining what it means to be human, and we believe that the Ability Hand™ is just the beginning. In the near future, our vision is to expand to include other prosthetic limbs and seamless integration with the human neuromuscular system. 

The market for our technology is continuing to grow rapidly. We are looking for investors who, like us, believe that everyone should have access to the most advanced prosthetic technology at an affordable price. Join our bionic revolution by investing with PSYONIC.

The 10% StartEngine Owners' Bonus

PSYONIC will offer 10% additional bonus shares for all investments that are committed by investors that are eligible for the StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. OWNer's bonus.

This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering. For example, if you buy 100 shares of Class B Common Non-Voting Stock at $2.35 / share, you will receive 110 shares of Class B Common Non-Voting Stock, meaning you'll own 110 shares for $235. Fractional shares will not be distributed and share bonuses will be determined by rounding down to the nearest whole share.

This 10% Bonus is only valid during the investors' eligibility period. Investors eligible for this bonus will also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest and the company surpasses its maximum funding goal. They will have the first opportunity to invest should room in the offering become available if prior investments are canceled or fail.

Investors will receive the highest single bonus they are eligible for among the bonuses based on the amount invested and time of offering elapsed (if any). Eligible investors will also receive the Owner’s Bonus and TTW Reservation bonus in addition to the aforementioned bonus.

An Engineer Arm-Wrestled a National Champion With a Bionic Hand. Who Won?



PSYONIC Ability Hand is 'a dream come true'


David had tried a prosthetic hand before. It wasn't for him, and he went back to using a hook instead. "“It’s uncomfortable, and it doesn’t function well,” he said of the old prosthesis. “But to be what I am — very physical — and to be outside working in the yard, raking, doing things like that, it doesn’t work.” 

Now, David is using a PSYONIC Ability Hand as part of a study at University of California Davis, where a team is working to make life easier for amputees through a combination of surgery, advanced machine learning, and smart prosthetics.

“For me, I love the outdoors. This is a dream come true because I’ll be able to grab my fishing pole and reel and grab things again instead of trying to hook it and it keeps slipping off,” he said. 

Watch the video below to hear more about David his new Ability Hand. He's a terrific example of PSYONIC users around the country and the growing $3 billion bionic limb market.

On CNBC, in Newsweek, and at the dinner table

In the last year, PSYONIC's Ability Hand has appeared on CNBC as a "Miracle in the Works" and in Newsweek as a "Medical Marvel." We're always excited for the opportunity to tell our story in such high-profile media.

But, on Thursday, the Ability Hand showed up in an even more special spot -- at one of our user's Thanksgiving dinners. He shared this photo with us and made our day. This is why we work so hard and why, with your backing, we're going to grow our company and impact for years to come. 

Invest in PSYONIC or expand your investment today. There are so many more thrilled users and so much more opportunity headed our way!

Don't leave your bonus shares on the table! Invest $1,500 or more.

I just invested in PSYONIC's new round. As a venture investor, I see alot of startup ideas. I have seen close to 5,000 pitch decks in four years. None have as clear a mission as Aadeel and the PSYONIC team. Not only is the Ability Hand technology groundbreaking, but also it serves a major pain point for the amputee community in terms of lower cost and improved durability.

Please support by forwarding this investment opportunity to those that want to make a better prosthetic universe.

Or this note from a doctor who is supporting PSYONIC...

As a vascular surgeon, I can attest to the challenges experienced by amputees; as an individual, three of my family members have experienced amputations as well. Both professionally and personally, I can attest to the importance of a useful, practical prosthetic that offers functionality and a return to routine activities of every day living. As an early investor, I can say with confidence that PSYONIC is not just providing a prosthetic to patients, they're providing a return to life for their patients.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
