The latest podcast from Up Close is now available.
"Tender connections: Fitting prosthetic limbs for comfort and cost"
Mechanical engineer Peter Lee and prosthetist Jim Lavranos describe the
challenges of creating low-cost prosthetic limb technologies in developing
countries, and contrast this with how things are done in wealthier
economies. Presented by Dr Shane Huntington.
"The socket is where the prosthetist comes into the action, because to make
a socket you really have to customise it to the individual patient. And
patient stumps then come with different shapes and sizes" -- Assoc Prof
