Project Summary:

Dana Cummings is a Marine Veteran whose leg was amputated.  He needs a prosthetic foot shell or an insert for a foot shell that is durable. He is a very active person and uses his foot shell often. The foot shells available on the market only last him for 2 or 3 months. He is hoping the students can develop a reinforced foot shell that is more durable and long-lasting.
