BioMedical Devices (GY)

  • Pioneering the fabrication of low cost, highly adaptable biomedical devices.

Arm in 3D printed brace [Team is paused]

We aim to design and prototype orthotics and prosthetics for patients who need custom made devices to improve quality of life. Students develop and design orthotics and braces starting at a 3D printed level. Using available resources they aim to improve the function and comfort of the device with the goal of keeping the overall cost at a minimum. The students investigate 3D printed materials, electronics, padding materials and app designs during the planning and construction process. The overall goal is to design a fully functional Biomedical Device that has
a place in the Physical and Occupational Therapy Market that can serve a variety of patients that are in need.
