Weir Biomechatronics Development Laboratory

Specializing in prosthetic limb systems at the CU Denver|Anschutz Medical Campus

Innovating Prosthetic Limb Systems

The Weir Biomechatronics Development Laboratory strives to develop better prosthetic limb systems by conducting research in fields ranging from 3D metal printing to optogenetics. We believe that finding solutions requires pushing the bounds of technology and creativity every day.  Our goal is to practically apply our knowledge to give back independence and confidence to people who use prosthetic limbs.​

Fitting 3D metal fingers to user's needs

Designing new postural control systems

Assembling 3D printed steel prosthetic fingers

Researching novel optogenetic nerve interfaces

Developing miniature motor controllers
