Sustainable Prostheses – An All Inclusive Approach to Designing in the Americas

The University of Rhode Island and SENA Centro Nacional Colombo Alemán in Colombia are partnering to create a new model that will engage their engineering faculty and students to collaborate in the creation of sustainable prostheses. Through this program, groups from both institutions will create affordable prototypes to address the enormous need for low-cost, light-weight prostheses in Colombia and the U.S. Students will work in cross-cultural teams and develop prototypes using each institution’s expertise. Teams will then present their design ideas to a jury of faculty from both institutions, company representatives, and other stakeholders.
