Design for life

25 11 2008

Not just in plastic surgery new technology and techniques find place. They can also find application where operations could not arrive, where skin manipulations, implants are not enough. I’m talking about people with serious mutilation at their arts or other disabilities who, thanks to the right mix of technology and design, now have the possibility to feel not too much different from other people including the chance to run, play, jumping at the highest level despite the clear physical lack. Here are some example of these extraordinary people.
