3D printing has become an incredibly powerful tool to customize one-off products for differing applications. This project was based on using this technology to design a customized prosthetic leg for a specific user- a young, urban, male athlete. Nike was chosen as an appropriate brand to bring form to the leg. It also required familliarizing oneself with the emotional, medical, lifestyle, and physical changes the user would encounter.
What Patients Say
Showing Off New Leg!
Hi, wanted to send you a couple pics from our hike this morning! She has loved her leg so far, and insisted on wearing it Thursday after we left you to her sister's swim practice, where she showed off her new leg to pretty much everyone she encountered. She wore it to school drop off the next day too to show her sister's classmates. We'll send some more photos as we get them! Thanks so much for everything!
