Hemanth brings a background in design and manufacturing to the team. He completed his BSc in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Calgary in 2021. He has biomedical research experience in additive manufacturing and robotics. He hopes to use his design experience to develop new and innovative solutions that address some of the key problems that currently exist with traditional prosthetics.
AICP is committed to advocating and innovating in the field of children’s prosthetics. On Labour Day weekend, we organized a golf fundraiser to help raise funds for our operations and to spread awareness on the issues faced by many children who require prosthetic and assistive devices. You can read a detailed account of our fundraiser on our blog. We also took the opportunity to deliver some device prototypes to Jerlena; she tested two devices and gave her feedback, which we will use to iterate on the designs and to improve the devices.
