In corporation with Bibian Mentel, DIDID has designed a lower leg prosthesis for snowboarding. Bibian is a Dutch pro snowboarder who suffered a lower leg amputation. She never stopped snowboarding, but the prosthesis she used for snowboarding was not developed for this purpose. The design of a prosthesis especially for snowboarding can take away the disadvantages of a normal prosthesis while snowboarding.
Comfort and mobility are the two most important factors for people having a prosthesis. This is the same for a prosthesis developed for snowboarding. The development of the prosthesis is split in two parts. The comfort of the lower leg prosthesis, during snowboarding. The second part is the mobility with the lower leg prosthesis while snowboarding.
