The Delft Institute of Prosthetics and Orthotics is part of the BioMechanical Engineering Department of the Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime, and Materials Engineering [Faculty 3mE] at the Delft University of Technology. Our goal is to develop and provide innovative prostheses and orthosis for the upper extremity.

The research outcome is, apart from being published, taken through a thorough process of clinical evaluation, resulting in commercially available products under the WILMER brand name.
