Innovative high performance body powered prosthetic technology. TRS Inc. was formed in 1979, by upper limb amputee Bob Radocy, who was frustrated by the limited performance of commercially available prosthetics devices.
Bob lost his left hand about four inches below the elbow in an auto accident in 1971. He experimented with all types of prosthetic devices and in 1977, while in graduate school, he applied his engineering, biological sciences education and design experience to create a high performance prehensor. This allowed him to be competitive with two handed peers in any activity he chose. Thus in 1980, the GRIP prehensile hand was first manufactured and today TRS offers a range of body powered upper extremity prosthetic solutions for both adult and paediatric amputees.
