Transtibial Prosthesis for Developing Countries

Zaman Felix Keinath-Esmail

Hello all,

My name is Zaman and I am a high school student in Washington, DC. I have designed and built a rudimentary prototype of a transtibial prosthesis that uses a compression sleeve around the thigh and adjustable length pylon in lieu of a socket, thus mitigating the need for frequent replacement as the child grows. Instead, the prosthesis will “grow” with them, saving hundreds of dollars over the course of a few years.

I am looking for someone who can help me through the process of testing and improving my design with a view to distribute it through organisations such as Doctors Without Borders and the Red Cross among others.

Please let me know if you’re interested.
