Description

Engineering students in the BYU Capstone program have created a special prosthetic socket for amputees in Sierra Leone. During Sierra Leone’s civil war from 1991 to 2002, rebels in the African country cut off the hands, arms and legs of more than 27,000 people. Their attacks left their victims permanently disabled.Most of the amputees who survived struggle to complete daily tasks and provide for their families. Unlike medical amputations executed at strategic locations, the rebels’ crude methods left limbs that make fitting prosthetics extremely difficult. This BYU project is aimed at helping above-knee amputees with a socket that fits neatly into prosthetics made available by the International Red Cross.This device was developed as part of the BYU Capstone program in the Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering.
