Lower Limb Prosthesis Prototype, Stance, 2016
This is a Lower limb prosthesis prototype.
The Simple Limb Initiative began as a project for students at San Jose State University to address affordable prostheses, specifically for children and teens who outgrow customized devices. The Stance, created and tested in partnership with Mahavir Kmina Artificial Limb Center in Colombia, is designed to adapt to growth without compromising function. Materials are sourced from regional manufacturers so that parts can be customized and assembled locally for under $40.
