Designer Creates Whimsical Prosthetics For Children

Jul 14, 2015 By Sarah Brennan
Children with disabilities have their resilience tested every day. Many go through daily rituals without a single complaint. Unfortunately, the challenges they face result in less time for fun and play. The Umea Institute of Design in Sweden is transforming the daily struggles of being a kid with a disability into a creative and fun experience.

The campaign began with one idea in mind. Children who need prosthetic arms should be involved with the creation from start to finish, making the process less systematic. But it doesn't stop there. Their prosthetic systems can be taken apart and built into something completely different. Whatever the child desires his hand to look like, he/she can make that vision a reality. How cool is that?
