Pushing boundaries in prosthetics
Axiles Bionics developed an innovative mechanical solution, the Lunaris, that accurately mimics ankle and foot movements of a human body. The ground-breaking mechanism enables both comfort and dynamics to a daily, active life. Walking, going up and down stairs or uneven surfaces become effortless again.
Our job was to support Axiles Bionics in translating this revolutionary technology into an actual product: feasible to manufacture, accurate but smooth assembly without compromising its design and appearance. After all, design and styling play a crucial role in creating an emotional connection.
Since prosthetics are worn by people, we wanted to step away from the traditional orthopaedic, clinical perspective and go for a more emotional, human approach. Working closely together with their engineers and designers we created a design that is comfortable, light but strong, compact and looks more like an actual foot.
