Lower Limb Prosthetic Assistive Technology (LLPAT)

Developing an inexpensive, simplified, noninvasive feedback system to better inform lower limb prosthetic users of the underfoot contours

Team Lead: Megan Harrison

We intend to develop an inexpensive, simplified, noninvasive feedback system to better inform lower limb prosthetic users of the underfoot contours, thus improving their stability during ambulation on uneven surfaces.

We had no funding before Idea Hub helped us out. With our funding we can now buy the sensors and actuators we intend to use on this project. With that, we feel confident buying nice sensors that are much more reliable. These purchases would not have been easy for our team to make out of pocket.
