Movement Enhancing Prosthesis

Movement Enhancing Prosthesis investigates the behaviour of passive prosthesis through the changes in materiality in the structural components. Each component was designed specifically for a type of movement on the human arm.

The components were 3D-printed using Multi-material Objet 3D Printer and SLS 3D Printer, and manually fitted with silicone elements to have rigid and flexible performance in strategic areas. The prosthesis is then fitted onto a dancer’s arm and a dance is created around the enforced rules of movement it allows.
