Recently, the Braun Prize was awarded for the 16th time in Kronberg. Donn Koh from Singapore won the prize for his project Leapfrog – a novel walking aid for children who suffer from polio or a deformation of the spine. The position of the supports automatically adapts to the child’s movements and is thus designed to prevent them slipping or falling over. “This project is based on a thorough study of the users’ needs and offers a complex and at the same time practical solution for a variety of physical disabilities. Moreover, the efficiency with which the device can be used as a form of physical therapy was positively received, one which motivates progress and increases self-confidence,” said Peter Schneider, Chairman of the Braun jury, justifying its decision. Donn Koh received €12,000 in prize money and in addition has the option to work for Braun in the design department for six months. The 24 best competition entries will be on display at the Braun headquarters in Kronberg, Hesse, until September 28. Subsequently, they will be exhibited in various venues all over the world as part of a traveling exhibition.
