      The thing I like the most is being able to come up with designs that truly help people and makes them have a better quality of life.

      I don’t make legs, so cant answer that one!

      Designing any artificial component is the same concept though – you have a purpose, an end goal, and you have to take into account a load of different factors along the way..so the conceptualisation and methods to get to the goal are the same, just problem solving varies – which is my favourite bit!

      Using engineering principles to design a product. I really enjoy the engineering process 🙂
