Challenge

As a result of war, landmines, birth defects and disease the number of people living with amputation and limb deficiency increases daily. Using conventional, short duration socket based technology, help for millions of these individuals will never be possible. Through the use of our ingenious Socketless Prosthetic technology it is possible to provide long term assistance at a fraction of the cost. In addition to amputees, this is the only technology that can help those with Leprosy.

Solution

Through this global project we will develop a high function, low cost hook that will not fail under the rigorous conditions found in most post-conflict countries.

Long-Term Impact

This basic hook will be designed to accommodate future interchangeable parts to address specific needs of people. In addition to fitting our Socketless limbs, these will be universally adaptable for conventional North American or European limbs.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
