Dino Bousso (1933-1971)


Professor Bousso died in 1971 after open heart surgery, at the early age of 38. He left important contributions in the fields of mechanics, dynamics and to the development of artificial limbs*, and also constructed his interesting mechanical inventions.

Bousso was awarded four prizes for some of his inventions:
Three gold medals in International Inventions Exhibitions, Brussels, Belgium:
- Two in 1967 for new pneumatic rotary actuator
- and for tensor calculator
- One in 1968 for gas powered artificial upper limb
and
First Marianne Bernadotte Prize for the best invention toward helping handicapped persons 1968 by the Swedish Fund.
