NSF Project at Advanced Manufacturing & Mechatronics Lab of MED 14/05/2017 To 03/08/2017

Two Students of The Ohio State University, Columbus and Three Students of The Colorado State University, Fort Collins Completed Their Third Year NSF Project at Advanced Manufacturing & Mechatronics Lab of MED

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; five 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 twelve 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 by standardizing the present process, and to maintain biomechanical responses in the foot while improving the longevity of the product. The student team comprised of mechanical and bio-medical engineering streams to work on three sub-objectives in the third year of this three-year project. Two undergraduate (Prateek & Ankit) and one graduate student (Aniket) 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 a socio-cultural amalgamation among students of the lab along with professional learning.
