Abstract

Modern day solutions to lower limb replacement come at large cost while providing little replaced functionality. In this project, a prosthetic foot structure is designed and tested that advances current technology by using a­ffordable fused deposition modeled thermoplastics. Overall design criteria are low weight and minimal cost of goods while maintaining robust structural integrity. Along with the prosthetic foot structure design the group will also be conducting tests on the material characteristics of fused deposition thermoplastics. After conducting the material analysis the results will be used to further develop the prosthetic foot design.
