Abstract

Below-the-knee (trans-tibial) amputees in Uganda cannot afford well-fitting prostheses, inhibiting working lifestyles. We utilized 3D-printing to create price-effective, well-calibrated prostheses. We aimed to increase the affordability of a trans-tibial prosthesis to enable amputees to return to the workforce.
