Development of a prototype of an innovative above the knee prosthetic socket with functional prosthetic cosmetics cover

UAB Medicinos centras, in cooperation with Kaunas University of Technology, is starting a new innovative project.

The goal of the project is to create a new prototype of above knee prosthetic socket with a functional cosmetics.

The design, when compared to the traditional leg prostheses, will include a proper design, meet the parameters of a person wearing the prosthesis. It will address the bio-mechanical standing and walking parameters. It will be customized for the client by using the mass scanning method. The prosthesis will be quickly produced using the latest production technology by selecting suitable biocompatible materials and the 3D printing method.
