Students of the OSU, Columbus and the CSU, Fort Collins completed their Second Year NSF Project at Ad. Mfg. & Mechatronics Lab of MED 05/05/2016 To 29/07/2016

As part of a 3-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), in association with The Ohio State University, Colorado State University, Santokba Durlabhji Memorial Hospital Jaipur and Malaviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur; four under graduate engineering students of the Ohio State University, Columbus and the Colorado State University, Fort Collins worked in Advance Manufacturing & Mechatronics Laboratory of the Mechanical Engineering Department for eleven weeks on Jaipur Foot. Invented in India By Prof. P.K. Sethi in 1971, Jaipur Foot has risen to its popularity and utility as product by reaching to masses as far as 26 countries mainly to low income group lower limb amputees. However, to improve it further the research team consisting of Dr. Tammy L. Haut Donahue, PhD of Colorado State University, Dr. Lisa Abrams, PhD & Dr. Sheryl Sorby, PhD of the Ohio State University, Dr. Harlal Singh Mali, PhD of MNIT Jaipur and Dr. Anil Jain of SDMH Jaipur proposed three main objectives: decrease the overall weight of the foot, facilitate the development of a mass production model, and to maintain biomechanical responses in the foot while improving the longevity of the product. The student team comprised of mechanical, metallurgical, industrial and bio-medical engineering streams to work on three sub-objectives in the second year of this three-year project. Three undergraduate and one graduate student of MNIT Jaipur also joined on the project this summer. As shared by the students on the valedictory of the project to the Head of Department Prof. GS Dangayach, the project proved to be an socio-cultural amalgamation among students of the lab along with professional learning.
