According to El Peruano, this initiative, known as “Reach, walk with me” has won the James McGuire 2018 award in Peru.
The arms and legs made from recycled materials can cost about 2,000 soles, which is well below the 10,000 soles that a conventional prosthesis costs.
“The work to produce the prosthesis prototype takes six months and the resulting piece has a utility of 10 years”, informed El Peruano.
