Jonathan Naber developed a prosthetic arm that can be built from plastic parts, has no socket but bars and straps and is cheap to build. He also founded IPT – the Illini Prosthetic Team.
Now, I watched his presentation [below] that and went …. hm. Hasn’t that been done before? Haven’t we heard these third world cheap prosthetic limbs would actually be so uncomfortable to not be worn at all in the developing regions that actually were (un)lucky enough to get them? Best to really start field testing soon.
