Improved Stability and Control of a Low-Cost Prosthetic Knee
The LIMBS International/Autodesk, Inc. SCOPE team built on the success of the LIMBS M3 Relief Knee to create a new intelligent prosthetic device. They used Autodesk tools to develop, design and create their prototypes as well as testing systems to characterize their protheses. Their novel solutions provided a more natural and stable gait when compared to current mechanical knees available in the developing world, while remaining affordable for amputees in the growing global middle class.
