In an effort to use their expertise on carbon fiber for new purposes, Lamborghini has partnered with the Houston Methodist Research Institute to analyze the pros and cons of the material in the field of medicine. The Italian car maker will conduct and share research on how and when to use carbon fiber, such as the use of prosthetics. Scientists believe the lighter material would cause less stress on the body, making it easier for those with prosthetics to move with less restriction.

This isn’t anything new for Lamborghini, as the company has experience working with biomedical professionals in the past. In Italy, Lamborghini has worked with with the Occupational Medicine Unit of Bologna University Hospital Authority St. Orsola-Malpighi Polyclinic, the Neurosurgery of IRCCS Institute of Neurological Sciences of Bologna, the Neurosurgery Humanitas University Rozzano-Milano, the CNR Institute of Neuroscience and Humanitas and IRCSS Rizzoli Orthopedic Institute of Bologna.
