Seen at the Gift & Interior trade #3:
In September I wrote about “The Design Revolution of Proaesthetics Supports” and it is obviously in the wind to rethink the design of medical devices. Master student Hans Alexander Huseklepp at AHO, have made the concept “Immaculate” that explores new possibilities for prosthetic devices. Instead of imitating a normal arm he wants apply the same philosophy used in eyewear. And make the products go from being purely functional to become objects of fashion and identity!
Immaculate is a neurological prosthetic, connected to the users central nervous system. The exterior of the prosthetic is textile clad in Corian plates. The Corian allows embedded technology to be seamlessly integrated, and in union with the textile gives the prosthetic a clear graphical identity. Each joint is a globe joint, allowing a larger freedom of movement than a normal human arm.
