Student from Illini Prosthetics Team Wins 30K for Socketless Prosthesis 

Andres Velasquez


Jonathan Naber, a student from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and also a member of the Illini Prosthetics team (IPT) has won the Lemelson-MIT Student Prize of $30,000 for his work on the development of a socket less upper extremity prosthetic.

The socketless prosthetic was developed by IPT with the intention to alliviate developing contries demands for an exempensive and easy to produce prostheses.

The socketless prosthetic was designed by IPT to have the following criteria:

   • Manufacturability - in order to eliminate the use of a custom mold socket and to allow for the prostheses to be produced by local companies. 

   • Breathability - The prosthesis is designed to allow airflow into the artificial limb.

   • Wearer-Adjustability - These feature reduces the wearers dependence on specialized people to adjust their device.

The worst part of it was that the software only worked intermittently and the data was not accurate. You obviously canot confront anyone about what you have discovered if the information is not right. Reebok Club C85 review
