CUSTOM DIY LIMBS

Individualized prosthetics using digital manufacturing

The goal of the project is to research an alternative method for Orthopedic Technicians (OT) to create a functional and safe below knee test socket based on accessible DIY and digital prototyping technologies. 3D scanning, modeling and printing will be evaluated in the production process of the test socket.The outcome and documentation of the work will be published online by the end of 2017.

MADE FOR MY WHEELCHAIR

The goal of the project is to develop an open source product for wheelchair users. The development process uses maker technologies in an inclusive team of users, technicians and designers. The product aims to bring convenience and fun to the daily life of users. we develop functional prototypes that are then tested by at least two users. Their feedback leads to further adaption and improvement of the product. The result of the project will be an open source product which can be adjusted to individual needs. Users and makers will be able to produce the products using accessible maker technologies. The construction plans and a DIY manual will be available publicly to be reproduced and further improved.

ANNEMARIE HACKEL

3D Printed cosmetic prosthesis

Using photometric scanners provided by the company Botsbot, Annemarie’s existing right arm and stump on her left arm were 3D scanned. Orthopaedic technicians and 3D-modellers collaborated to turn the resulting files into a perfectly fitted prosthetic. The aesthetic design of the prosthetic was then customised together with Annmarie Hackel and developers at Fab Lab Berlin. An essential part of this project was the cooperation between the patient, orthopaedic technician and designers.

About us

Company details

Exploration and development of novel and innovative solutions for intelligent orthotic and prosthetic systems as well as better human-technology interaction.

The goal of INOPRO to develop innovative, intelligent prostheses that are scalable for every person which are better adapted to humans, provide more support, and improve the quality of life of many prostheses users. This is accomplished by bringing together cutting edge mechanical systems, feedback and sensor systems, and parametric modeling techniques.

The general objective of the INOPRO project, which is divided into three subprojects, is the exploration and development of novel and innovative solutions for intelligent orthotic and prosthetic systems, as well as better human-technology interaction. The following advances are expected: 1) Independent, adaptive system adaptation to the behavior and environment. 2) Sensory feedback: the basis for more security and trust. 3) compensation of lost skills by active support. 4) Simpler and more intuitive control. Lightweight, comfortable, silent implementation with inconspicuous, anthropomorphic and appealing appearance. 5) Modular design for maximum flexibility and cost-effectiveness as well as use of generative production processes.
