MINES: SOCKET AIR PUMP (2)

Our Innovative and Life-Changing Solutions

Challenge:  Socket Air Pump
Challenger:  Veteran who is a transtibial amputee
University Partner:  Colorado School of Mines
Student Team: Ian Gordon, Jason Matney, Alexander Merritt, Bradley Peacock, and Jacqueline Pierce
Faculty Advisor: Donna Bodeau
QL+ Program Manager:  Scott Huyvaert


Project Summary:

The students are tasked with finding a solution for a veteran who is a transtibial amputee to minimize the number of times his prosthetic would need to be removed for volumetric adjustment throughout the day. The goal is to produce a simple system that could be utilized within existing prosthetic sockets that could accommodate changes in the volume of the residual limb.
