Mechanical testing apparatus to test the rigidity of silicone prosthetic.

Project Overview

A new method of fabricating silicone prosthetics has been developed to improve rigidity. The team’s task is to evaluate the properties of the improved material. This entails designing a load sensing device to quantify properties of the material allowing the team to determine how much stronger the new method is compared to the current method.
