The Netherlands based designer, Damian O'Sullivan, has designed a range of medical aids aimed at giving the elderly back their dignity.  Instead of the traditional gray function based products, which the designer points out, highlights their difficulties rather than celebrating their capabilities, these products are all about adding a little joy and personality to medical aids.  The project includes 4 aids: a crutch, an arm cast, a neck-brace and an eye-patch.  Each is made of porcelain.  Damian chose porcelain because it's "fragile yet strong" encouraging the user to take care of their injury and "hygienic whilst elegant" fulfilling its medical nature while still remaining beautiful.
