Pierre studied physiotherapy and has a Master of rehabilitation engineering. He has worked for MSF since 2015. After a first mission in Ukraine and a second in Haiti, he joined the 3D-printed prosthetics project in November 2016. He arrived in Amman in February 2017.
"I use a clinical questionnaire to assess and analyse the needs and expectations of each patient before we embark on the production phase. It takes time, but it is an essential step if we are to design a prosthesis that is adapted to the individual’s needs. Throughout the project, I also work with the patients to produce physical and fonctional assessments. Socket fit and the alignment of the prosthesis, comfort, time worn daily and the perceptions of others are all key elements that need to be taken into account."
