‘one togo’ by neo design

german designer benjamin heirich of neo design has created ‘one togo:’ designed for children and teenagers in togo, this prosthesis has a durable construction devised for longevity and can be produced for under 30 euro.

‘one togo’ can be adjusted by 8cm on both the lower leg and thigh, allowing it to expand with the growing user. the whole system is also modular so parts can be easily repaired or replaced in case it becomes damaged or too small.

made of metal and wood, materials for the prosthesic limb can be easily sourced and constructed in a workshop based in togo. additionally, the foot shape is symmetrical to keep the production and storage costs low, and the sole of the foot reuses an old bicycle tire for grip and cushioning.
