Jason 2.0

Listen to Jason Laing’s story speaking at TEDX about how he recovered from his injuries using 3D Printing and Virtual Reality technologies. Jason is a frequent collaborator with BunnyCorp working on various projects ranging from jewellery to medical. We are currently in the process of developing new types of prosthetics for animals and humans for various types of disabilities.

 

Adjustable Prosthetics

untitled.461

For the past 2 years we have been very closely with Pro Paedic developing Adjustable sockets for Prosthetic limbs. We used high end 3D printing to create custom adjustable sockets that not just fits the patient perfectly but also allows them the freedom to tighten and loosen their prosthetic limb as needed improving the level of comfort. So far the medical trails have been going very well and below you will see some results from our latest test on the Mark III Socket. We would like to give a special thanks to the guys at the Center for Rapid Prototyping (CRPM) at Central University of Technology (CUT) in Bloemfontein for their assistance in sponsoring the 3D Printed socket.  Check out the video below!

Ozzie’s Final Prosthetic Leg

Final Leg Renders

We are happy to announce the after the last two months of hard work, experiments and tests we have finalized Ozzie’s prosthetic leg.  For the past two weeks Ozzie walked with his final test leg proving that the design is solid and he is adapting quite nicely to using a prosthesis. We have learnt a lot through the process and are very happy to see positive results as Ozzie’s life is getting as close to normal for a goose as it can get.

Ozzie’s Upgrade at work

Ozzie Update

 

Ozzie just received another upgraded leg this past Friday, we sorted a few problems with the previous one and I am happy to that we can now finalize the design for his final leg. We shortened the foot’s skeletal base so he has more flex in front making it was easier to walk, we also added some movement to the ankle which provided us with good information about what the final angles should be. He will be walking with this leg until the final one arrives.

legs 001

Ozzie has so far spend some time practicing walking on his test legs and getting used to the idea of walking again. His overall mood has improved and he seems to be a happier goose all together, he is even swimming more than he used too! This week we printed an upgraded version designed by Jeané Bresler from BunnyCorp, she combined some of the previous designs and we also cast silicone over his prosthetic foot to give him a bit more grip on slippery or smooth surfaces.

Ozzie Swims with his new 3D Printed Leg

Ozzie usually only goes for a quick swim as he could only swim in circles with one leg! Today he couldn’t get out of the pool, we are happy to see that he is learning to swim straight with his 3D Printed leg. Video with ompliments from his parents, the Burger’s, thanks for sharing 🙂

We are busy with a big upgrade to the existing design and will be manufacturing and fitting it within the coming week so keep an eye out!
