I would like to know how prostheses constructed.
I want to apply to a company which manufactures many types of prostheses.
Which templates are used for this? (3d-scans, X-ray images, pictures etc.)
This might help? Maybe not, I have never made one or worked for any company making them.
did you make this "freestyle"?
I'm looking for someone who is designing and constructing things like this everyday :)
I am a designer. Free style, I guess so - I saw a picture and modelled up. I would be unsure about the power of the gas strut and the effect of it, I am unsure of the fitting and how that works with the "limb adaptor" but it all look fairly straight forward. This is a bit old school now I would think the modern stuff makes very interesting and good use of composites.
Not sure if this will help any but interesting
I am a prosthetist and have fabricated prosthetic devices for 8 years. what kind of fabrication procedures are you interested in? Are you just looking for a general breakdown of what it is all about?
Hi, thanks for the reply. Asked this question over 3 years ago and I'm working for another Company now. May you could write a short about the general design process for other guys.
