Today I spent the majority of my day in school, studying for the upcoming exam next week, 20180822 132100as well as started to prepare and structuralize the beginning steps for my master thesis that's scheduled to start on September 3rd. There is a lot of work to do before the master's start trying to locate what literature, articles, data collections methods etc I need to conduct the study. As well as looking in to new hardware as well as to what software needs this work will require. And as it happens I had a appointment to go to the orthopedic departments on the county hospital for casting of new sockets. I've been postponing the visit to the hospital now under the summer since I've been trying to loose some weight through training, so there's not really been any idea to cast a new socket before I stabilized my weight. The casting session went well and I'm excited to say that my orthopedic engineer were up to trying to manufacture a lower socket for me. Since my residual limb is longer then most I think I can take the load from my body weight and spread it on a large enough surface that it could walk with a socket that's lower then up to the knee cap. I guess it will show once I get to try the socket out in the coming weeks. So I tried to 20180822 132108combine both business and pleasure whilst there. And I started by asking for statistics gathered on the department, in regards to how many sockets per year they manufacture, how many patients they have, what does a typical socket cost etc. And this information could be crucial during my masters when trying to develop a cost-model for the coupler and trying to calculate the gains for the municipality as well as the hospital. Since one of my working theories is that the coupler should have an impact upon the need for multiple sockets, it should reduce the need for repetitive manufacturing as well as the costs that follows. Also got some information about different trade shows and upcoming events in Sweden regarding amputees and people with other disabilities, and hopefully I could attend some of them during the coming weeks.
