The program  helps innovators, entrepreneurs, engineers, tinkerers, and companies advance new product ideas and establish new commercial opportunities. The team created a redesigned knee-brace hinge mechanism that reduces or prevents injuries from compressive, hyperextension, and valgus-bending loading mechanisms that are common during sports injuries of the ACL. This is the second LTU BME team to complete the program.
