“What’s next? I am standing here waiting…”

This was the challenge put forth to the design community by U.S. Paralympian, Blake Leeper, at the 2013 IDSA International Conference.

In partnership with Eastman Innovation Lab, we put our collaborative research techniques to the test when we undertook a clean sheet, human-centric design approach to advance prosthetics technology for athletes as well as for the general population of amputees.


Our collaboration with Blake and Eastman Innovation Lab was featured in Fast Company. Take a look at their article here.

A Human-Centered Approach

First presented at the 2014 IDSA International Conference our team detail their design philosophy, showing how it is driving the development of prosthetic running devices designed to work more harmoniously with the human body.
