BostInno: IDEAS Competitor Michael Chun (Need-A-Knee)
Michael Chun, IDEAS competitor and CEO at Need-A-Knee, was named one of BostInno’s 25 Under 25! Congratulations Michael!
“When Matthew Chun is not on the wrestling mat, the mechanical engineering student is grappling with some of the toughest challenges facing amputees in developing nations. Grown out of the MIT D-Lab, Need-A-Knee develops low-cost transfemoral rotators that increase the range-of-motion for above-knee amputees. Chun said the devices can help address the limitations of conventional prosthetics by allowing patients to sit cross-legged, move through tight spaces and even get dressed with ease.”
