Senior projects tackle ‘real-world’ problems, serve community

Sean Benjamin of mechanical engineering demonstrates the prosthetic hand developed by his team, Prosthesis for New Syria, by picking up an egg at Design Day. Around 40,000 Syrian refugees living in Lebanon require upper limb prostheses. However, most current transradial prostheses are expensive, not easily accessible, or not easily customizable. The team used 3D printing technology. The printed prosthetic parts are combined with a muscle sensor to obtain muscle signals from the patient’s residual limb, which in turn actuate flexion in the device’s fingers.

Is there a better way to monitor who’s knocking on your door when you’re not at home? What if surgeons could realistically practice operations ahead of time – but not be unnecessarily exposed to X-rays? And how do you entertain young patrons in a children’s library, in a way that stimulates their interest in science and technology?
