Modern prosthetics are developed to offer comfort and practicality in a range of complex environments. This Stage 5 unit, The science and technology of prosthetics and the physics of movement, explores a number of technological advances in the field of prosthetics including material strength, sensors and actuators and osseointegration. Students will investigate the physics of movement, including the forces involved in walking and jumping, and will capture and analyse accelerometer data from their investigations. Students will also investigate the specific strength of a range of materials in order to determine the best material from which to make prosthetics. This resource is also downloadable as a SCORM file: the downloaded version will only work if you upload it to a webserver, such as Moodle or Canvas.
