SAN DIEGO - November 14, 2022 - (

Bionic technology company PSYONIC announced that it has launched a fundraising round on the crowdfunding website StartEngine. The round will support the ongoing development and delivery of its breakthrough bionic hand. It has raised more than $500,000 in its first two public weeks and is currently listed among the site's most-funded companies.

Released nationally in 2021, PSYONIC's Ability HandTM was called the a "miracle in the works" by CNBC earlier this year. 

The tough, lightweight Ability Hand is the only multi-touch sensing bionic hand on the market, and it closes faster than the blink of an eye - in about 200 milliseconds. It is made in the United States and is covered by Medicare, making it much more affordable and accessible than any other advanced bionic hand on the market.

Dr. Aadeel Akhtar, PSYONIC's CEO, first encountered a person with a limb difference as a child visiting Pakistan with his parents. "She was my age, living in poverty, missing her right leg, and using a broken tree branch as a crutch. That's what inspired me to want to go into this field and develop these advanced bionic limbs that would be affordable and accessible to others around the entire world."

People throughout the United States - grandmothers and veterans, triathletes and teenagers - are already using the Ability Hand. (Watch them arm wrestle, flip a water bottle, and work on the farm.) PSYONIC is also exploring the development of a bionic leg, artificial tendons, new methods of providing sensory feedback, and software to improve biointegrated technologies' functionality, responsiveness, and ease of use. 

Anyone over 18 can now buy shares of PSYONIC with a minimum investment of $250.

The bionic limb market is expected to grow to almost $3 billion in the next eight years, and PSYONIC's Ability Hand is in high demand among robotics researchers as well. NASA, Meta, and Apptronik are clients.

"The Ability Hand's anthropomorphic form factor with robust and feature-rich hardware offers an exciting and unique potential to use it as a platform for research in robot learning and dexterous manipulation," said Mustafa Mukadam, Ph.D., who is working with the Ability Hand at Meta.

Levi Hargrove, Ph.D., director of the Center for Bionic Medicine at the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab, said, "The Ability Hand is an extremely capable device, even for our most advanced research studies. The PSYONIC team is responsive to our feedback, which makes it very easy to use with our intuitive and personalized control systems." 

PSYONIC is a bionic technology company based in San Diego. Leveraging proprietary bionic breakthroughs, PSYONIC's Ability Hand offers those with limb differences the high-performance solution they deserve. PSYONIC was founded by Dr. Aadeel Akhtar, who was one of MIT Technology Review's top 35 Innovators Under 35 in 2021.

Proxymity, the leading digital investor communication platform, today announced its collaboration with FIS® to launch FIS Proxy Voting by Proxymity. The digital proxy voting service connects issuers, intermediaries, and investors ensuring that investor communications are delivered in real-time.

Rapidly increasing cost pressures amidst an unpredictable economic environment necessitates a reliable, intuitive solution to investor demand for increased transparency. This solution allows businesses to take better control of investor communication and proxy voting, backed by a subscription-based global technology solution. "This new service with FIS offers excellence in transparency, with communications occurring instantly," said Jonathan Smalley, Co-Founder and COO of Proxymity.

Tapping into the service will allow FIS clients to benefit from an end-to-end digital connection that is expected to improve their shareholders' voting experiences by facilitating instant distribution of meeting announcements. 

The new service will also enable FIS clients to establish extended deadlines and provide them with an enhanced confirmation procedure. Proxymity's research has revealed that, upon adoption of its digital proxy voting solution, votes arrive with issuer more than 48 hours earlier and usually show a deadline improvement of up to six days on average, when compared to traditional paper-based processes. 

This proxy voting service supports active governance with issuers contributing to the fulfilment of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals and Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) regulatory requirements. FIS banking and capital markets clients will benefit from the very best investor relations solutions, saving time and money by sending votes in real-time to issuers or their agents, and receiving verifiable digital proof that their shareholders' votes have been cast.

Capital markets firms without a digital proxy solution could benefit significantly from this solution, with the recent FIS Global Innovation Report showing that 75% of global executives from capital markets firms believe ESG offers an opportunity to improve competitiveness in the market.

Tony Warren, Head of Strategy and Solutions Management for Capital Markets, FIS said, "Efficient corporate governance is key to our business and that of our clients, and we believe that this new service will strengthen this proposition and could reduce costs for several issuers at this critical time. This new solution is another example of how FIS fulfills its mission: Advancing the way the World Pays, Banks and Invests."

Jonathan Smalley, Co-Founder and COO, Proxymity, said: "The benefits of this collaboration between FIS and Proxymity will be felt keenly among businesses eager to eradicate inefficiencies in their current channels. The primary goal must be to ensure investor communications are seamless and swift, which FIS Proxy Voting by Proxymity will guarantee. We look forward to seeing the fruits of this collaboration."
