LaCrosse High School Team Invention To Help Amputees

A group of students and a teacher at Logan High School in LaCrosse have finished a unique invention.  Members of the Logan InvenTeam showcased their prosthetic limb energy management system prototype.  The Logan InvenTeam was awarded nearly $10,000 through a Lemelson-MIT grant.  The group has been working on creating a prosthetic limb energy management system.  After much trial and error, the group completed their prototype which charges prosthetic limbs without needing a wall socket, improving an amputees ability to travel without restrictions.  The InvenTeam will present their prototype at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in June.  The group is also working to obtain a patent and to license the invention to a company that can manufacture it.
