This is a paper which is made in the context of Design for All. Design for all is an optional
subject that is taught at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering of Delft University of
Technology in The Netherlands. The assignment for this subject has been given to us by
Mister J. Molenbroek (Associate Professor who teaches Design for All) and Mister H.
Kooistra (Dutch surgeon, who independently works in Sri Lanka as a surgeon and helps
victims of landmines). There are different groups working on this assignment and there is
a price (3 roundtrip tickets to Sri Lanka to implement the solution) to be won for the
group which comes up with the best solution or design for the assignment. According to
us the succes of the solution is dependent of the people (their culture and good will) in
Sri Lanka. We therefore see a decent analysis as the first and most important
requirement to be able to implement designs in Sri Lanka.

The purpose of this paper is to inform everybody who is interested in our solutions for a
prosthesis which can be produced and used in the third world. This paper is written in
March till May 2002. It will (hopefully) be the introduction for a project in Sri Lanka with
local disabled, for which will be tried to implement the design and/or to make necessary
improvements.

In Appendix I we will give individual motivations why we follow this optional subject and
why we choose this design project.
