Together with friends from the university, the guy creates an individual prosthesis.
In the United States, a student uses his knowledge of 3D engineering to help his dog that has lost a leg.
Together with friends from the university, he is working on the creation of an individual prosthesis that will allow the dog to regain all its mobility.
Jordan Rosenfeld didn’t just adopt a dog that, due to her disability, had little chance of finding a new family. He is also doing his best to give her the best quality of life by designing a 3D printed prosthesis for her.
It is reported by NBC Boston.
Originally from New Jersey, Jordan Rosenfeld is studying biomedical engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts (northeastern United States).
A year ago, he discovered a social media post about a three-legged dog in need of a loving owner.
He was touched by the fate of the animal in question, which responded to the name Cleo. The dog was the victim of a traffic accident. Before fleeing, she was hit by a driver.
Discovered by a passerby, she was taken to a veterinary clinic where her life was saved, but not her right front paw. The limb had to be removed.
Jordan Rosenfeld adopted her soon after. He saw with what determination this dog sought to climb the slope. Today she can run again, but slow movements are difficult for her.
She also has difficulty standing on three legs in a stationary position.
The young man set himself the goal of making a custom-made prosthesis using 3D printing. Complicated and littered with pitfalls, but for which he can count on the help of his student friends.
