Team will take prosthetics to Haiti

In developing countries, especially post-war countries such as Vietnam, Korea, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Laos, Iraq, and Haiti, amputees cannot afford the high price of prostheses, which ranges from $500 to several thousand dollars.

A 2009 Sustainable Vision team from Mercer University is designing a new prosthetic socket that is cheaper and takes less time to fit to the amputee, helping reduce overall cost.
