One can only wonder how people with disabilities, in this case one leg, would be thinking. Some would feel sorry or useless but other like Christina Stephens may have a positive outlook which could perhaps be the reason for this LEGO Prostetic Leg creation.
The intrepid occupational therapist (Amputee OT) put together a prosthetic leg of her own, using plastic LEGO pieces. The project was a result of a co-worker at her research lab joking that she create a leg from LEGOs.
Thus, with her own prosthetic as the model, she got hold of two boxes of LEGOs and eventually came up with the “Legoleg.”
Unfortunately, the LEGO leg is not functional. However, it does look neat and should spur up some ideas. Who knows? Maybe someday, sturdier LEGO pieces could come out to make this idea possible.
