Project Summary:

The students are tasked with finding a solution for a veteran who is a transtibial amputee to minimize the number of times his prosthetic would need to be removed for volumetric adjustment throughout the day. The goal is to produce a simple system that could be utilized within existing prosthetic sockets that could accommodate changes in the volume of the residual limb.
