  • For more than 20 years, Eythor Bender has worked on the cutting edge of bionic technology that merges man and machine to enhance individual abilities.
  • Eythor Bender shares with his audiences amazing stories of people overcoming unbelievable odds to walk again or compete at the Olympic level using futuristic bionic prosthetics.
  • Eythor Bender inspires and awes audiences as he tells them about the super humans using futuristic bionic technology to walk again or accomplish other physical feats that seemed impossible.

Eythor Bender, CEO and co-founder of UNYQ, gets to see technology make the impossible happen every day. The company he leads uses 3-D printing to bring personalization and digital optimization to people who use prosthetics and orthotics, giving them the opportunity to live a life of mobility or strength they never thought possible. Throughout his career, Bender has fostered the innovation of bionic and orthopedic technologies by taking them from impossible ideas to reproducible FDA-approved products that help individuals participate in their life and community.

A native of Iceland, Bender began his career working on medical diagnostics and computer imaging with Hewlett-Packard. He spent 13 years with Ossur (the last six years leading its Americas division), where he took the company from a start-up to world leader in wearable non-invasive technologies. Although Bender focused on business development, sales and marketing, because of his background in product innovation, he also remained involved in product development. One of Bender’s claims to fame while he was with Ossur was the creation of the Cheetah Flex-Foot prosthesis, which was worn by the bilateral amputee, Oscar Pistorius, in the Olympics. Following his leadership with Ossur, Bender became CEO of Rex Bionics, a company that pioneered exoskeletons for people with spinal paralysis. He then served as CEO of Ekso Bionics, the leading developer of a wearable robot that enables wheelchair users to stand and walk.

Bender has a Master’s degree in Business and Economics from Eberhard Karls University in Germany. He also is a faculty member at Singularity University. He is fluent in German, Icelandic and English.

Eythor Bender intrigues his audience with the story about wearable robots; how they’re not just futuristic ideas, but are here today, helping people be successful. He talks about the main two uses of these robots—for soldiers to carry heavy amounts without incurring injury, and to allow people who are wheelchair bound to walk again. He moves the audience with powerful live testimonies of people who thought they would never walk again who are now using the wearable robots to increase their mobility, and soldiers who are finding their mission easier to accomplish by wearing the exoskeleton robots.

Bender praises participants in the Paralympics and how they are making use of these exoskeletons, accomplishing more than anyone imagined. He also talks about scalability for these robots and how his vision is for them to become more affordable, especially for people who might need them to survive, not just for mobility or better quality of life. He pushes his audience to consider what cutting edge technologies they might envision that would help meet needs in ways that challenge the current knowledge base to even consider.
