Overview

The building blocks of prosthetics come in many materials, shapes, and sizes. To create lightweight yet sturdy prosthetics, we explore 3D printing in plastic, carbon fiber, steel, and titanium. In addition, we investigate different methods of actuation such as miniature 3D printed gearboxes for fingers and twisted coil polymers. While some of these parts may look like something out of Star Wars, these are more than just computer-generated images. These prosthetics are real and they work for real people.

Globeville and Elyria Swansea (GES) are historically isolated and marginalized neighborhoods in northern Denver. Recently, there has been new and planned development in the neighborhoods impacting property values. Residents are beginning to feel this increased economic pressure and are fearful of being displaced. An in-depth analysis of demographic, housing, employment, and property valuations are used to identify causes and factors that can influence or already are influencing displacement in GES.
