Lower-Limb Prosthetic System

Client: Project Circleg

Project Circleg started in 2018 as an industrial design undergraduate degree project by two to design students at the Zurich University of the Arts. Since then, Project Circleg is evolving from a degree project to a social impact business.

The Circleg is an appropriate modular lower-limb prosthetic system designed for the needs of amputees in developing countries. By smart design and the utilization of recycled plastic waste in combination with adapted production methods, the Circleg prosthesis can be produced locally and cost-efficient.

The ambitious goal of Project Circleg is to equip as many people as possible, who previously had no access to a prosthesis, with such an aid and at the same time strengthen local economies.

Radiate is part of the advisory board of Project Circleg and supports the team in structural questions and challenges in the field of FEM simulation and optimization as well as design for manufacturing aspects of the prosthetic system.
