Limitless Socket designed to help amputees heal

Device designed by University of New Mexico students
University of New Mexico assistant professor Christina Salas, standing at right, poses with the team of students who took first place in a UNM biodesign competition for conceiving and developing the Limitless Socket, a device designed to improve patient recovery after lower-limb amputation Jan. 31 in Albuquerque. The design won the $50,000 prize in the 2017 UNM Biodesign Program competition. The money, $25,000 from the university’s School of Engineering and $25,000 funded through a pilot grant award from UNM’s Clinical and Translational Science Center, will be used by the winning team to develop a prototype and test it.
