Livingston, Scotland – 19 January 2016 – Touch Bionics, a provider of world-leading upper limb prosthetic technologies, today announced that preliminary results indicate the company achieved total revenue of £15 million in 2015, an increase of 11% over 2014.
Touch Bionics’ growth was driven by strong results from its European markets, most notably in Germany, and also in France, where the i-limb is now officially approved and funded by the French governmental health authorities.
“We are pleased with our 2015 performance and are proud that there have now been more than 5,000 i-limb wearers fitted world-wide”. said Ian Stevens, CEO, Touch Bionics. “In 2015, we introduced the i-limb quantum and i-digits quantum hands, both of which can be controlled using simple gestures and are stronger and faster than their predecessors. We anticipate continued growth from sales of these electronic prosthetic hands and partial hands in 2016”.
