PRTE 2020 - Anatomy of Upper-Limb Amputation and Long Trans-Radial Fabrication

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture None Lab None
Course Description: This course introduces students to upper-limb amputation anatomy and upper-limb measurement charts. Students will identify upper-limb components used in the prosthetic industry and fabricate a long trans-radial prosthesis.
