The current canine prosthesis market is catered towards dogs with amputations. Due to the variations in limb deformities, there is yet to be a customizable solution. Instead, the production of prostheses for deformities occurs on a ‘case-by-case’ basis and the products are tailored to a specific user. The goal of this project was to design and fabricate a low cost device that would increase mobility and stabilize the gait of the canine user. Our project focused on a dachshund with a front limb deformity to produce a device that can be customized to other canines with similar deformities. The final device was a 3D printed custom fit prosthesis.
