Swift is a prosthetic for individuals with a below-knee amputation that slips on and off quickly like a slipper. Putting on a traditional prosthetic leg is a time-consuming process that requires putting on a liner and perhaps some socks before the prosthetic can be worn. During user research, the designer was shocked to find that many amputees would simply crawl on the floor if they needed to get up to use the bathroom or get a glass of water during the night. Swift provides a prosthetic that can be simply slipped on, allowing for quick and easy short-term use within the home.
