SIMPLEG / prosthetic leg


Amputees in 3-world land mine accidents need a product that will allow them to maintain their normal physical activities alongside other natives. But it is impossible for them to purchase existing artificial limbs because it's produced on a 1-to-1 basis therefore making it expensive and slow to produce. On the other hand Simpleg can be mass-produced as it consists of simple modules and easy to find parts, hence making the assemblies fast and cheap. This product makes user separate gravity that centralizes to the normal leg. As this product is designed with the users sedentary life style in mind, therefore it can be used with convenience.
