Abstract [en]

Prosthetic leg can give a negative psychological effect to the user, which ends up in decreased self-esteem and that the user hides his handicap. xCover gives a more natural volume and a cool look. xCover changes the look of the prosthetic leg C-leg. The product is constructed by us, Patrik Svensson and Magnus Zetterqvist, for Christoffer Lindhe at Lindhextend AB. Christoffer has hired Martin Bergman at Smedjan 17 to make the design. It is developed in Catia V5 and most of all in the workbench Imagine and shape. The project has resulted in a product that is easy to use and can withstand an active lifestyle.

Abstract [sv]

Benprotes kan för många användare bli en psykologisk belastning vilket resulterar i en försämrad självkänsla och att man försöker dölja sitt handikapp. Med xCover blir volymen på benet mer naturlig och ger ett häftigare utseende.  xCover förändrar utseendet på benprotes av märket C-leg. Produkten är konstruerad av oss, Patrik Svensson och Magnus Zetterqvist för uppdragsgivaren Christoffer Lindhe och Lindhextend AB. Christoffer har anlitat Martin Bergman på Smedjan 17 till formgivning. Konstruktion och modellering är gjord i Catia V5. Framförallt arbetsbänken Imagine and shape har använts för att bygga en 3D- modell av formgivarens skisser och modeller. Arbetet har resulterat i en produkt som är enkel att använda och tål ett aktivt liv hos användaren.
