Amanda Lingle is a graduating Biomedical Engineering major. Last summer, she got the chance to work for Medtronic’s heart valve division. During her time at Cal Poly, she has gotten to work on several interesting biomedical projects including a start-up physical therapy device and a wheelchair attachment for a child with Spina Bifida. Outside of school, Amanda is the President of the club Cru and spends the rest of her free time either rock climbing or line dancing.
Conner Magnuson is a graduating mechanical engineer seeking full-time opportunities. In his free time he enjoys backpacking, rock climbing, and spending time in nature. Therefore, designing a prosthesis to enable Cassie, a military vet, to enjoy backpacking and the outdoors comfortably was a suitable aspiration.
Marco Lopez is returning to Cal Poly for the 2020-2021 school year pursuing his Master’s as part of the BMED Blended Program – Project Track. He has been involved in several biomedical projects like researching how knee loads are affected with and without shoes. He has also been involved with outreach with local high school students through SHPE Jr. In his spare time, he likes to cook, hike, and study the Spanish and Japanese languages.
We would like to thank QL+, our advisor Karla, and Cassie for providing us with the opportunity to hone our skills while working on a challenging project in a collaborative environment! We would also like to thank prosthetists Tim Bump and Matt Robinson for dedicating many hours throughout the year to provide us much needed guidance on this project!
