Problem Statement: The purpose of this project is to design a below-knee prosthetic device that increases patient compatibility.
Overview: We are a sub-team within the H-STEM Enterprise focusing on the development of prosthetic devices. Annually, 150,000 people undergo below-knee amputations and are then required to obtain a prosthetic . However, acquisition of a customized prosthetic does not come without a plethora of challenges:
The Knee prostheses team is a dynamic team of individuals whose areas of interest include prosthetic design, electrical engineering, modeling, and biomaterials.
