Joel Sadler - Solving Big Problems with Tiny Prototypes

TEDxJamaica - January 2014

Joel Sadler is a BioX Fellow at Stanford University where he explores enhancing human creativity with better prototyping tools. While studying engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology he became interested in the needs of wheelchair users, and developed a love of the design process applied to the human body.

In this inspiring TEDx Jamaica talk Joel Saddler describes how he, as part of a team, designed the JaipurKnee prosthetic, a radically affordable knee joint for amputees that has impacted thousands of lives. Joel's work on the JaipurKnee has received worldwide recognition, including being honored by Time Magazine as one of the top 50 inventions of 2009.
