Infant Prosthetic Arm

 

Background:  My work aims to innovate the design of assistive aids and
medical products, changing perceptions and removing stigmas. I believe these
products should follow the ethos of ‘essential for some but desirable for all’. My
approach includes using human-centred design methods to create designed
products that are current and inclusive. Instead of intending to meet normal
human ability, why not innovate, embrace diversity and aim to extend it?

Brief: Design a 3D printable upper limb prosthetic for infants that is aesthetically exciting and non-stigmatising.

Outcome: A custom 3D printed socket modelled from a scan with an interchangeable and highly customisable prosthetic limb.
