A test of an articulated foot system for the Lowcost Prosthetic program of FabLab Amsterdam and HONFablab. Based upon the articulated foot research of Nancy Seto, intern at FabLab Amsterdam.

This design sketch aims to use the inner tube of a bicycle tire for providing the elastic tension of the foot. This material is cheap and widespread around the world, making it possible for the user to replace parts without tools or specific knowledge.

Next step will be experimenting with casting rubber as a flexible ankle joint.
