Ozzie the goose and his human friend Sue Burger went to the BunnyCorp office in South Africa to have the feathered fellow's stump measured and photographed. BunnyCorp, a South African digital design firm, volunteered to design a new leg and foot for the disabled waterfowl.
Designers at BunnyCorp created drawings during the process of building a new leg for Ozzie the goose. These concepts play off the natural mechanics of a goose's leg. The designers measured Ozzie in person to ensure a good fit.
Ozzie the goose received a new 3D-printed leg thanks to the work of several volunteer sponsors. Design firm BunnyCorp created this concept for a leg prosthesis. It was then printed out and fitted to Ozzie so he could walk again.
BunnyCorp, a South African digital design firm, has experience working with human prostheses and used that knowledge to help create the goose leg and foot design. This test prosthesis is a starting point and changes may be made once Ozzie the goose wears the beta model for a while.
This prosthetic leg and foot designed for a disabled goose bends in the same locations as a real goose leg. Ozzie the goose, whose broken leg had to be amputated, is the recipient of the 3D-printed leg, which is helping him to walk again.
