TRS Inc. was formed in 1979, by upper limb amputee Bob Radocy, who was frustrated by the limited performance of commercially available prosthetics devices. He lost his left hand about four inches below the elbow in an auto accident in 1971. Bob experimented with all types of prosthetic devices. In 1977, while in graduate school, he applied his engineering and biological sciences education and design experience to create a high performance, prehensor which allowed him to be competitive with two handed peers in any activity he chose. Thus in 1980, the GRIP prehensile hand was first manufactured.
Since then, TRS has grown to become the leading innovator of body-powered prosthetic devices in the world. TRS remains specialized. We design and build only high quality technology for persons missing a hand(s).
Please use TRS as your personal information resource in upper limb prosthetic technology. We are here to help you!
I have recently added a TRS prehensor and TRS kayak attachment to my rotation of prosthetics, with a TRS golf attachment on the way. Thank you so much for the attachments you've created/made. I truly believe I can get back my quality of life since I found you on the web. Keep up the great work while I adapt my life with your products.
Thank you very much for the Hoopster hand. It is by far my favorite hand yet. My shot is 3x's better now! Thank you so much for providing great products and bettering amputee's quality of life!
Thank you so much for the prosthetic attachments! They help me so much!
Thanks for such an unbelievable product! Using your Grip 3 Hand and Harness, I was able to write my name again. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am.
Thanks so much for allowing me to borrow some items to show my students who are majoring in Outdoor Education. They very much appreciated being able to see, touch and examine these items and how they make these activities possible.
Thanks again. I couldn't enjoy riding my motorcycle so much without your Grip!
I would like to thank Bob Radocy for his generosity on donating the TRS terminal device, this was provided to beneficiary Maria Rodas completely at no charge to her.
