Estudiantes Americanos de Honduras

In October 2006, Ashley, Lena, John, and Kevin chose the design of prosthetic limbs for Central Americans as their senior design project. Since then, they have identified the ankle joint as an avenue of potential benefit to amputees in the region serviced by CAMO. Because CAMO has developed a very successful laboratory in western Honduras, the students decided to design a universal ankle joint that could easily be adapted to the products already provided by the non-profit organization. The ankle will provide added utility to those working on the mountainous landscape who cannot afford an articulating foot. Their final design will be presented on April 24th, so be looking for the video online during the last week of this month!
