Abstract

This purpose of this project is to create a prosthetic leg for a tripod canine and to create a prosthetic leg that will be best suited to create movement similar to that of a normal canine. Animal prosthetics is a growing field, as they aid as a replacement for amputated animals or aid as assistance to a deformed or mutate limb. The most common prosthetics are in canines. There are many ways to create prosthetic limbs and by finding which maker, as well as what materials that can be used, that are the most effective as well as saving patient owners hundreds of dollars. 3D printing is a new technology that is being more commonly used to substitute more expensive materials, it is not only as efficient but cheaper to create and fix mistakes. The ten day trial with the two test subjects will be done to makes sure the results are constant. Results will show which prosthetic leg created will help the tripod canine move more like a quadruped canine. / ​ / /
