Bamboodia is a low-cost prosthetic specifically designed for people with below-knee amputation caused by landmine explosions. The bendable and elastic features of bamboo allow it to fit the curve of human ankles, creating a comfortable and effortless user experience. The polycaprolactone socket allows users to soften it with heat and shape it on their own. Through mass production, the cost of Bamboodia can be significantly lowered compared to traditional customized prosthetic.
