“Researchers at Virginia Tech are integrating electronic sensors into personalized 3D printed prosthetics, a development that could lead to more affordable electric-powered prosthetics.

By integrating electronic sensors at the intersection between a prosthetic and the wearer’s tissue, the researchers can gather information related to prosthetic function and comfort, such as the pressure across wearer’s tissue, that can help improve further iterations of the these types of prosthetics.

The integration…”
