BrainCo's Prosthetic Hand Helps Amputee Play the Piano for Millions of

Viewers

Somerville, MA, November 20, 2019 --(PR.com)-- For Lin Anlu, playing the piano has been a lifelong
dream. Having lost her right arm at a young age, it seemed likely to remain a dream. But last year, Anlu
became the first amputee to play a piano duet using BrainCo's advanced prosthetic technology.

Anlu stunned a live audience and millions of TV viewers as she played Mendelssohn's “On Wings of
Song” with world renowned pianist Lang Lang. Anlu made it look effortless. To prepare, she trained to
control BrainCo's prosthetic hand using her muscle signals coming from the part of her arm that she still
has.

BrainCo's prosthetic hand, a CES Innovation Award honoree and MassChallenge Gold Medal Winner,
works by detecting an amputees intentions from their muscle signals and translating them into hand
movements. While this type of technology has been available, it has largely been limited to an incredibly
small number of amputees because of the high cost, sometimes costing as much as $60,000 per hand.

BrainCo's mission is to provide a prosthetic hand to amputees around the world for a fraction of the price.
They are currently targeting a price point of $10,000-$15,000. In addition to the lower price, BrainCo has
also developed a more advanced algorithm that allows users to intuitively control the individual fingers of
the prosthetic hand. This level of control makes the prosthetic feel like a natural extension of the amputee.

BrainCo has started the FDA approval process and aims to have the device in the USA market in 2020.
