Where is the Milwaukee Chapter?

Postby CarlMilwaukee » Tue Oct 18, 2016 5:44 pm

You listed Cedarburg Library on the chapter map but I contacted Cedarburg Library and they said there is a 3-d printer but no group. UW-Milwaukee allegedly has a group but I do not have the contact info and there was no group listed other than Cedarburg Library that I saw on the map. If someone from Milwaukee would provide contact information that would be appreciated.

I am an adult looking to have a custom prosthesis designed so I can demonstrate to two handed people how to do exercises with two hands for personal training or similar teaching activites and or so I can do weightlifting with my other arm in a manner in which torque becomes less confusing due to limb length differences so I can develop my upper body strength evenly. I would like something detachable easily, but this might not be possible with a prosthesis able to lift heavy weights. I do not want something electric unless they are cheap now, like less than $1000 for the electric part instead of tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars like they used to be in the figures I remember hearing. I do not know if you make designs for adults

If someone teaches me the skills I might also be willing to volunteer at helping adults but I only took 1 semester of autocad, my current skills are insufficient. I studied exercise science and ergonomics and do not have mechanical design or mechanical engineering degrees

I am only interested in working with adults not children

If anyone from Milwaukee would contact me or post their contact information that would be appreciated

It looks like the closest chapter is in Rochester (https://www.facebook.com/groups/enabler ... r/?fref=nf). I'm sure they would be happy to help guide you through making your own device. You might consider the Osprey since it is strong enough to do weightlifting.
