AK Prosthetics is founded by Adero Knott (she/her), a congenital amputee that has worn a prosthetic arm since she was a toddler. After working abroad in China, Adero returned to her home of Chicago in desperate need of a new prosthetic arm since hers no longer fit after weight loss. It took several months for her to receive a new arm, all while suffering chronic pain from an ill-fitting socket for days.

Frustrated by lack of affordable and customized prosthetics led to the beginning of AK Prosthetics.
