Running Prosthetic

This project was financed by Kraft Foods Peru and Patria Films and I worked in collaboration with Ricardo Geldres, industrial designer and former proffesor at Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru and Diego Leon, freelance industrial designer. The main objective of this project was to experiment with local materials to see if it was possible to design a low cost and efficient running prosthetic for marathon runner Pablo Huaripata.
Pablo Huaripata is a marathon runner from Cajamarca, Peru. He was born with a lower limb reduction defect that affected his right leg from above the knee, however this didn’t limit Pablo from practicing different sports and becoming one of the most known disabled marathon runner in Peru.
