The arm with a pulse.
‘Synchronised’ is a re imagining of the prosthetic arm as a piece of jewellery: a gestural, kinetic addition to the body.
Made from electroplated gold carbon fibre, the arm is covered in clear acrylic layers that form a mirror of Kelly’s right arm. The internal electronics take a reading of her pulse, and the wrist then ticks in time to her heartbeat. It can continue to tick when she is not wearing the arm. The current model has two hands that can be changed by the wearer, in clear and blue resin.
