Orthosis

The concept deals with muscular diseases of young persons, their desire for discreet aids and the everyday problems like stairs and steps. Monté creates a connection of new technologies and fashion and stops the typical stigma of orthopaedic aids. Artificial electro active polymers support muscle groups that are important for stairs climbing. The slenderness of the textile outhouses fits under clothes easily. The adaptive design shows the strong reinforcements without looking too technical.
