COVVI’s main objective is to design and deliver the COVVI Hand; the world’s most advanced, powerful and robust bionic hand. Creating a myoelectrically-powered multi-articulated device that surpasses leading products within the industry isn’t a feat that comes easy. Passion, hard work and dedication have ensured that the design, function and long-term operational logistics derived from extensive use, repair and customer support are prioritised every step of the way.
In August of 2017, entrepreneur and current Group CEO Simon Pollard formed COVVI with the vision of delivering a world-leading prosthetic hand from a company that has users and clinicians at the heart of everything they do. Working collaboratively over the years has actioned a real positive change in the many lives of upper-body prosthetic users around the world.
Our team of mechanical design and electrical engineers laid the groundwork by embarking on a considerable phase of research and development so designs could be constructed. Such research included investigating the flaws of existing prosthetic devices, establishing relationships with an assortment of industry professionals throughout the product supply chain, and even choosing the right software to enable great and efficient design work.
A full design concept had been established by January 2018 and from there the demanding stage of experimentation and work towards bringing the designs to life could begin.
What Defines Us?
COVVI is a portmanteau of the Latin ‘Coperor’ and ‘Vita’, translating as ‘working together’ and ‘life’, respectively. The two ‘v’s represent multiple lives changed. In other words, COVVI was conceived to change many lives by working together – within our team and partners, with clinicians worldwide, and with our users.
Our name was formulated with great thought in order to reflect our single driving intention of working together and with others so we can change lives. Along with the name came our Delta logo; a symbol with meaningful origins, such as change and doing things differently. With these core elements of our brand established, our understated but powerful colour palette and design guidelines naturally followed and in turn guided the aesthetic finish of the COVVI Hand.
A New Horizon
We plan on keeping our aim at the forefront of the minds of all our clinicians around the world, as well as their patients, whose lives we want to help transform. Having a team that is so devoted to COVVI’s aim has had the most positive knock-on effect on our performance and end-product.
The COVVI Hand has been a labour of love from the moment of its conception, and every one of us is excited and humbled at the prospect of nurturing it. We will continue to develop and ensure we stay ahead of the curve in the bionic prosthetics industry – changing lives through innovative technology is what we do here at COVVI.
