Aesthesis is a 3D-printed functional aesthetic device on the hand for “people who have lost their thumbs”. Wing-yan’s vision for designing Aesthesis is to allow thumb amputees to regain autonomy over life and empower them to have self-confidence and self-appreciation. It aims to create a barrier-free environment as well as inclusive product design. In the longer run, Aesthesis strives to provide customized service at a lower price with greater visual attractiveness.
