Product Design: Prosthetic Design
The World Health Organization estimates that there are 40 million amputees. There is an ever-growing demand for prosthetic limbs to support amputees over the course of their lifetimes. This course explores the design and development of an economically viable prosthetic socket for above-the-knee amputees in the developing world. By applying user-centered design practices and using Fusion 360 CAD/CAM software to design a digital and 3D printed prototype, you will be able to generate a low-cost conceptual prosthetic socket design to meet real world human-centered challenges.
