Aside from the OpenSocket, the bump team is working adamantly to break ground in a similar device for children. An affordable prosthetic for children would be ideal since children are rapidly growing, therefore quickly out-growing the expensive traditional device. We are trying many different types of designs and materials and hope to create the perfect device soon.
Here are some pictures of Ben and Sudeep hard at work:
Me: Hey guys, keep working I'm just going to take some candid picture of what's going on around the office....
Me: Okay, really guys, what part of candid do you not understand? You're not supposed to model for it.
Me: Alright, we're getting a little closer to making it look like we actually work here....
In all seriousness, we are very excited to be working on a youth-sized OpenSocket with support from the National Collegiate Inventors & Innovators Alliance. Expect more updates in the coming months.
