Research project: Prosthetics and Orthotics

Currently Active: 
Yes
Project type: 
Grant

Bioengineering approaches have been designed to monitor both shape changes and loading conditions at the interface between the stump and socket of lower-limb amputees.

This research is in collaboration with academic colleagues in Engineering (Professor Liudi Jiang and Dr Alex Dickinson). Our research has encompassed UKRI funded projects to develop a Triaxial pressure and shear (TRIPS) sensor system and a EPSRC Global Challenge Research Fund project to support prosthetic provision in South East Asia. In addition, the team has been involved in a successful KTP with Blatchford (UK) and a spin out company which provides a digital platform for prosthetic socket design, Radii Devices Ltd.
