Exercise Science senior's independent summer research explores prosthetics.

Capstone Explores Medicine’s 3D Future

As part of her research, Molly Schonfeld visited a company that uses 3D printers to make custom prosthetic limbs and was inspired to write her final paper about this new technology.

“We think of prosthetics as arms and legs, but now with 3D printing, they’re making organs,” says professor David Petrie, who advises Schonfeld’s independent study. “We’re graduating students who may be on the initial part of this future in medicine.”

With the increasing need for occupational therapists who can work with wounded veterans and others who may need prosthetics, Schonfeld, an Exercise Science and Physical Education major, will be prepared for advanced Occupational Therapy training.
