Penta Medical Recycling

Most Innovative Medical Equipment Repurposing Initiative - North East USA

Penta Medical Recycling is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that collects and repurposes used prosthetic limbs for amputees in developing countries. Due to liability issues, prosthetic devices cannot be reused within the United States, and as a result, hundreds of thousands of high-quality, functional prosthetic limbs are discarded every year. Penta works with clinics, manufacturers, and individual amputees to collect these, and then fits them to amputees in need through partners in Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and Latin America. To them, these limbs represent an opportunity to work, return to school, and re-enter society. Penta is thus breaking down barriers to prosthetic care and success while also solving a problem of enormous waste in the United States.
