Designing a Wearable, a piece to be used on my body.

Initially began with movement studies. Understanding the way the body moves through diagramming and shape structures. I then studied joints and movements of joints and bones.

Realizing the sensitivity of the ankle joint through ankle impingement injuries common with ballet dancer. I decided to develop an ankle strengthener, Springth. This product works with the design of springs, and using a variety of springs for tension differences. By changing springs, different people can attach this product to their ankle to strengthen their joints with the desired, customized tension needed.
