DiveDesign and Bionic Pets Partnership
DiveDesign is an industrial design firm co-owned by Adam Hecht and Alex Tholl. DiveDesign helps solve complex problems through new technologies. Over the course of 6 months, they worked with Derrick to reinvent the way these devices could be made. Now utilizing 3D scanning, custom software, and 3D printing to make these futuristic prosthetics. The jackets get used for both the prosthetics and carts and are made from TPU (Thermoplastic Urethane) which is lightweight, skin safe, breathable, semi-flexible, durable, and waterproof. Using traditional human-grade prosthetic components and pair them with either a custom shock-absorbing foot or cart setup depending on the case.

About 3D Full Limb Prosthetics
The traditional way of building these, while effective, can be very labor-intensive, wasteful, and does not offer as much overall device flexibility. To combat these challenges and make this a better product, we worked with DiveDesign to create a system that now allows us to 3D scan patients' molds, build the device in custom software, and 3D print the final device. The TPU material is lightweight, breathable, waterproof, and flexible to account for weight changes and body movement. In addition, the 3D Full-Limbs have a shock-absorbing foot to continue alleviating pressure from the torso.
Full-Limb Prosthetics without Nub $1,880
Full-Limb Prosthetic with Nub $2,000
Wheel Attachment $250
Shock absorbing foot (for older prosthetics ($100)
About the 3D Carts
No dog is the same so why should their cart be? Similar to our 3D Full-Limb Prosthetics, we worked with Dive Design to create a system that now allows us to 3D scan patient's molds, build the device in custom software, and 3D print the final device. The TPU material is lightweight, breathable, waterproof, and flexible to account for weight changes and body movement. Additionally, we worked to develop new joints and wheels that allow these carts to be very modular in terms of height, width, pitch, and more. These carts can be designed for both front and rear end uses.
Carts are case by case and range from $750 to $2,250
HOW IT ALL WORKS: MAKING THE PROSTHETIC
Creating A Cast
Our casts are custom to your pet's individual need and body type to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness.
Once a mold is taken, we use a special 3D scanner to digitally translate the cast mold into our custom software.
Your pet's cast is then modified with design software to the specifications of your pet's needs and body.
The design is printed on our high-resolution 3D printer on skin safe, flexible Thermoplastic Poly-Urethane (TPU).
After sanding and imperfections are removed, we attach human grade prosthetic components and a final inspection is made.
EVERY DETAIL: TESTED & OPTIMIZED
Shock Absorbing Foot (v3.0)
Unlike off-the-shelf prosthetics (which are often rigid and created for one size fits all uses) our design considers the safety and mobility of your dog’s unique body type and disability.
Our version 3.0 foot scrutinizes a comfortable landing for each step, maximizing your pup’s confidence in their new prosthetic.
Custom-Fitted To Your Dog
If it’s uncomfortable, your pet will resist wearing it. We take a mold of your dog to create the perfect fit for our flexible jacket design.
Our state-of-the-art process creates unparalleled comfort and effectiveness compared to other prosthetics available on the market.
Perfectly Refined... Digitally
After our high-resolution scanning process, we further refine the design in our custom developed design software.
Design adjustments are made before the prosthesis is produced and adjusted for our patient.
Your Dog's Mobility Is Regained
The goal of our prosthetic is to reduce strain and fatigue from overuse, as well as hyper-extension and chronic arthritis of the remaining forelimb.
With incremental training and practice, we’re confident you and your furry friend will see a great deal of success with our full-limb prosthetic, giving your pup renewed mobility!
