ARTIFICIAL LEG TECHNOLOGY

The physically challenged persons are one of the excluded sections of the society and also they face many problems in their daily life. They face many difficulties in doing their own work. Especially the people with one leg or no legs face many challenges that they could not even  walk by their own.

In the earlier days itself to overcome the difficulties faced by these people japan researchers invented the artificial legs made of plastic and other fabrics. These japan manufactured legs made the life of these handicapped people easier but the major defect in these are the manufactures face difficulty to take dimensions of the victim’s leg and preparing it with the accurate dimensions. These artificial legs makes injuries to the victim too. So, in order to overcome these difficulties many researches were put forward by many researchers and now they invented a new technology called artificial leg technology.

The artificial leg technology involves the usage of 3D scanning technology. The new process uses mobile 3D scanning technologies to accurately capture and transmit 3D models of the residual limb, to design comfortable transformal sockets. This technology is used to fabricate plastic models of residual limbs to support the socket manufacturing process. The scanner allows the technicians to quickly and accurately measure residual limb dimensions. The scanned data will be beamed to the cloud, and downloaded by manufacturing center to design and manufacture perfectly  fitting prostheses.
