The Invitation Card
You are cordially invited to an interactive talk by Ashok Mathur on Plan to Fail: The Challenge of Creating a 3D Printed Myoelectric Prosthetic Hand that is suitable for India.
The session shares the story and the process of how an idea, a desire to do good and a challenge transformed into creation of a team, acquiring of skills, search for solutions and finally the successful creation of a customisable 3D printed myoelectric (sensors picking information from muscle movement) prosthetic hand that is suitable for at the shoulder' amputees (thresher accidents are the main reasons for hand amputations in India). At the same time the production cost has been brought down from 3.75 lac to 10,000 rupees.
This session will be useful to businessmen, entrepreneurs, managers, doctors, designers, scientists, engineers, IT people, non profit workers, basically anyone who is planning on creating anything (and we hope that is everyone).
