Devil Prosthetics

 

Project description

Each year there are over 9000 children in the United States that endure a traumatic injury that results in an amputation. Many of these children already struggle with insecurities and an amputation cause cause them to endure more depression and shame following the many surgeries and hospital visits that come with amputations. 

Our group is working to encourage confidence and self-love among young amputees by creating customizable myoelectric prosthetics. Patients are able to customize different designs and hand motions in order to express their own personalities and embrace their amputation.
