My name is Casey Ho and I am an Industrial Design graduate living in Markham. I have always been a creative person, non-traditional and hands on. As I grew up I experimented with different creative outlets, painting, sewing, model making and many more. This creativity led me to a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Design, showing me a different perspective on what my creativity is capable of. I have had the opportunity to test my abilities as a designer and work with many companies, making a connection with incredible individuals and having a better understanding of the world around me. My time at Humber has helped me realize my passion for 3D modeling, photoshopping, and graphic design. My creativity and passion for design has led me to create products and innovations which adds meaningful value and improves the quality of life for other people.
The four essential pillars encompass human-centric design approach and the understanding of full-bodied, three dimensional physical interaction of user, product and environment. The projects generate innovative solutions using research-driven, evidence-based designs which focus on the user experience.

Asa is designed solely around the user, with various touchpoints to ease the users pains and adjust Asa to their needs.
Asa is designed with an adjustable gel lined socket to ensure the most comfortable fit for the user. Asa's sizing can be easily adjusted and 3D printed to best fit the user.
Asa is available to the public via an electric semi truck, using the recycled container as a workspace. Asa is manufactured solely using 3D printing using solar energy.
Asa is made with long lasting materials, that can later by recycled into new filament to be used back into manufacturing.
The amount of violence and suffering that occurs in developing countries is astonishing, but the main problem is their access to proper healthcare. It is a basic human right to have access to medical facilities, without it, citizens of these countries will continue to suffer. One of the largest problems in Vietnam is amputation, it completely changes the life of the patient. The effects of life after amputation are dependent on the quality and access of prosthetics, majority of events resulting in amputation are road accidents and war. Life in Vietnam can be difficult as living in rural villages is common, and the main sources of travel are biking, or walking, if they have money bus or taxi. These citizens lively hoods are dependent on being physically capable so that they can work on their farms to sell produce or efficiently work in manufacturing factories. The process when getting a prosthetic requires time and money, the socket must be measured and custom made, while the parts are imported, not to mention the physical therapy needed later. These crude scraps can damage the amputated limb and requires constant maintenance, while giving no guarantee for functionality for their jobs. This thesis proposes a thorough research of the daily lives of citizens in Vietnam and the challenges they face.
