IKO Creative Prosthetic System Grand Prix 2016

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.
