Interface Mechanics in Lower-Limb Prosthetics
Postdoctoral Fellowship beginning January 1999
Dept. of Bioengineering, Univ. of Washington, Seattle

The Prosthetic Engineering group has a well-established,
NIH-funded, research program that seeks to better understand
interface mechanics between the trans-tibial prosthesis and
the residual limb. This interest manifests itself in two
closely-linked tracks of interface stress measurement and
finite-element modeling.

A two-year postdoctoral fellowship will become available in
January 1999 in this research program. If you are
interested in the biomechanics of force transfer from an
external surface to the skeleton and have a background in
finite-element modeling we would be interested in your
joining our group.
