Congratulations to Carlos Arturo Torres Tovar, Netexplo Grand Prix 2016 for IKO Creative Prosthetic System (Colombia)


Turning children's disability into a source of creativity 

Colombian designer Carlos Torres wanted to help children with malformed or injured arms feel less isolated by making their disability feel less of a burden or a stigma. He thought of a modular prosthesis that children can play around with. The project led to a prosthetic hand that is compatible with Lego parts. Children can customise it by picking different shapes, colours and accessories. As well as technology, imagination can help children overcome a handicap.
