Creoto: A programmable smart socket

Malav Sanghavi – RCA Innovation Design Engineering

Winner: The Snowdon Award for Disability

Creoto is a dynamic, form changing smart socket for prostheses that can be customised according to the users comfort through digital input in real-time. The user can select different grips according to the type of activity, for example sitting requires a relaxed grip, walking, a medium grip and sports, a firmer grip.

Judge’s comment:
“This design is exceptional in its excellent design and straightforward proposal to relieve a lot of stress and discomfort to a person who has suffered limb loss.”
