Meet TED2014 Fellow David Sengeh, a doctoral student at the MIT Media Lab working to improve the comfort and affordability of prosthetic limbs. His research in the Biomechatronics Group at MIT focuses on the design of comfortable prosthetic sockets and wearable interfaces. David’s hope is that one day prosthetics, and other wearable interfaces, will integrate seamlessly with the body. He is also the President and co-founder of Global Minimum Inc. (GMin), an international NGO that has distributed over 15,000 mosquito nets in Sierra Leone.
