    Abstract

    Hands of X is about materials, choice and ownership in the co-design of prosthetics. Most innovations in prosthetics still tend to be medically-framed or technology-driven, offering two extremes: anatomical realism or bionic cyborg hands. Hands of Xaffords people with limb difference the possibility of co-creating simple and understated prosthetic hands. In appearance these hands are not “super-realistic” or “super-human” they are “super-normal” (Pullin 2018). The project has received academic and design recognition, it featured in the exhibition Access+ Ability at the Cooper-Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in New York; was showcased by the V&A Dundee; and received an award for public engagement in research.
