Hatim Masadeh

Hatim has experience in the traditional manufacturing of prostheses, and was particularly interested by the 3D-print prosthesis project which gave him the opportunity to discover an innovative new manufacturing process. 

"Working with the biomedical engineer, I take the necessary measurements and finalise the prosthesis production once it has been printed. With the physiotherapist, we then evaluate the suitability of the socket and prosthesis over time. With 3D technologies and numerical imaging, the prosthetist can work remotely which is a huge advantage in complex or dangerous field conditions."
