The MAPS project aims to develop new materials and multi-material structures that can be customised for upper limb prosthetics. The use of multifunctional systems integrated in the socket of the prosthesis will improve the performance, ergonomics and comfort of these devices.

The project, coordinated by Dr. Simone Pittaccio, has CNR-ICMATE at Lecco as its leading institution and as project partner: CNR IPCB, TEDH Politecnico di Milano- Polo territoriale di Lecco and Univerlecco
