How To Hack A Prosthetic

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6"][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3"][vc_column_text]Early this year London Senser Jude Pullen reached out to HQ to share a side-project he’d been working on. He had recently embarked on a journey with Nigel Ackland, an amputee and bebionic prosthetics user (watch his TEDx here), to explore how to help his prosthetic hand have a DIY solution to repairing worn-out fingertips.

Intrigued? So were we…

What initially started out a brief exploration into the world of prosthetic design, soon became a passion project for Jude as he began to research new and creative ways to augment Nigel’s prosthetic. From heat reactive fingertips that help warn for high temperatures, to glow in the dark material that allows users to tie their shoelaces in the dark, you can watch Jude discuss his inventions with Nigel in the video below.

Jude said of the project:

“For me the project is really exciting as it not only speaks to how we need to consider how to design for inclusivity, but it also pushes designers and innovators to go beyond the mainstream and look in less obvious places to innovate. By looking at extreme use cases, you can often appreciate how to make a better experience for all.”

Watch Nigel and Jude discuss the hacks below.

If you’re interested in how Jude designed his creations, you can read all about his process in detail on Instrucable. Here’s Part 1 and Part 2.

Seeing Senser’s creative intelligence at play, especially in a field that helps so many, constantly inspires us here at HQ.
