A Loughborough graduate is competing in the finals of Santander’s emerging entrepreneurs competition.

Kate Walker will pitch her business ExpHand, which designs prosthetic limbs for children, for a chance to win up to £30k in seen  funding.

The idea for ExpHand came in 2017 when Kate met a girl called Zoey who was born with below elbow limb loss and had never been offered a prosthetic before. Kate went on to learn that 90% of people who need artificial limbs do not receive it because of a lack of doctors, access and expenses.
