This past school year, I advised a second team of BME students who were developing the C-Ankle. The students include Erika Zabre, who brought the first design to Honduras last May, Andrew Horton, who designed the fatigue tester, and two new students, Michael Sinclair and Wei Lu.
The students did an excellent job. Michael completed an extensive SolidWorks model and Finite Element Analysis. Andrew completed the fatigue tester, with Erika and Wei creating the software to run it. And Erika and Wei applied for IRB approval and directed the clincal testing of the ankle. They presented their work at the beginning of this month.
