Find inspiration from others making improvements within medicine and health.
D-Rev created a sturdy, affordable knee joint prosthesis that addresses the specific needs of low-income amputees. The design was based on extensive feedback from amputees to ensure that users can kneel, squat, and ride a bicycle. Digital prototyping, durability testing, and analysis further refined the design's functionality.

Where can I take free online courses that explore medical, health, and fitness innovation?
This course explores the design and development of an economically viable prosthetic socket for above-the-knee amputees in the developing world.
In this class, you'll follow a concept-development process used widely by product and industrial designers. You'll learn how to integrate tools for identifying relevant user needs, develop various potential design concepts, and refine a final solution—all within Fusion 360. Additional tools for visualization such as rendering and 3D printing will allow you to test your concepts and improve them as necessary.
In this project, you'll apply user-centered design and sustainability practices to design a new water, sanitation and hygiene solution using Fusion 360. The project is inspired by the Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Community Design Challenge in Diepsloot, South Africa
