Quiz 32.1A: Development of high performance parasport prosthetic limbs: A proposed framework and case study

ABSTRACT: Sport with a disability has progressed from undertaking physical activity for recreation to one of a high
performance environment at competitions such as the Paralympic Games. There is currently limited
information and guidance to help inform stakeholders as to how to develop the high performance
technology of elite athletes who possess limb absence. In this manuscript, a conceptual framework for
high performance prosthetic limb creation is presented. This utilises a synthesis between contemporary
product design theory and a review of existing case studies. This proposed framework is then applied to
a case study. Ultimately, the framework provides an indicative guide to the creation of prosthetic limbs
that emphasise technological performance enhancement over that of mere sporting participation.
