During the Summit, Drew Spahn’s “Crosswing” concept took the top spot in the Movin’On Challenge Design’s 2021 global competition. The New Jersey design student created the concept Crosswing to enable people with amputations to move around cities more efficiently by giving them the ability to skate for transport or leisure. The Crosswing provides the same walking assistance as a prosthetic leg but offers a riding experience that compares to a skateboard or pair of skates.
