      Thank you for asking! I think a big goal in our work is to make any healthcare improvements available to as many people as possible. In reality this is a complicated process as there is different health care systems throughout the world. Reducing the cost of healthcare is a big subject at the moment and hopefully technology developed in the future will be available to more and more people! Helping to make this the case is certainly something I think about in my work.

      I would certainly hope so! But as Sean has pointed out, it is a very complicated process to get this done. But I will do everything I can to make it easier to provide accessible healthcare and technology for everybody, worldwide.

      I want it to be. I’m really into the idea of knowledge and scientific research being available freely to everyone so i’d love for my work to be available to everyone in the world.

      I hope so if it works! If it was developed into a product it would be sold all over the world but if not the methods and stuff I use will be available to read.

      Sadly not. The limbs I work on are at the higher end of the price range, so most of tr third world wouldn’t be able to afford them.
