Design of Preservation Device to Mitigate Amputation InjuryPublic Deposited
The purpose of this project is to design a portable, wearable device to preserve limbs for reattachment surgery after traumatic amputations. This device can be used to treat victims of natural disasters, industrial accidents, and war. Achieving this objective will increase the effectiveness of replantation surgery and increase the quality of life after recovery. Throughout the duration of this project, different preservation methods were used in experimentation, and reiterations of possible design alternatives were made leading to the desired outcome. Testing was completed to simulate the preservation of a limb and determine the viability of the proposed solution. The team settled on a novel preservation method and prototype that has no prior art associated with it.
