Canadian technology institute goes global with prosthetic innovations

October 6, 2017 - The British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), in Canada, is looking into how 3D printing can revolutionize prosthetics. Their researchers hope to create novel prosthetic designs that will provide beauty and function to the users.

A recent event at the Technical University in Munich, Germany, brought the Canadian researchers abroad to collaborate with other artists, amputees, and researchers to brainstorm ideas to help revolutionize the way prosthetics are created.

“BCIT faculty members participating added a global perspective to the event. This new technology has the potential to better meet amputee’s wishes and desires as well as providing more flexibility and productivity to a traditionally focused industry” said Prof. Dr. rer. soc. Sabine Maasen, professor at the Technical University in Munich.
