We at Makea enjoy working together directly with patients and specialists from different professions to develop and create products that improve their life. This specific project’s goal was to create new opportunities in fitting and design concepts for a cosmetic prosthesis, and to include the amputee in the process of the customization.
The project was initiated as a way to investigate better methods for acquiring fast and reliable data for a digital approach to upper limb prosthetics. Botspot offered us the opportunity to test in their scan room that is equipped with 72 high resolution digital cameras for digitizing persons and objects.
The final product was based on the mirrored anatomical data of the amputee’s remaining arm which provided us with a totally new option in aesthetics and production.
