Kingsley Robinson Collection
Documenting amputation and rehabilitation
Distinguished surgeon Kingsley Robinson FRCS is a leading figure in lower limb amputation, designing a revolutionary technique for transtibial amputation.
Kingsley Robinson assembled a remarkable collection of glass slides showing the treatment and rehabilitation of amputees at Queen Mary's since World War One. DOT digitised and restored the dusty and degraded slides, producing a custom iPad kiosk that allows visiting clinicians to browse the sometimes sensitive images of the archive at the hospital.
The archive includes a wide variety of images cataloging early limb designs, amputees at work making artificial limbs at the Roehampton factory, visits from Royal patrons and X-ray images of congenital deformity.
We designed a custom kiosk case in CNC cut ash faced marine ply for the 12.9" iPad, and tailored graphics for a bookcase to house Kingsley Robinson's book collection along with the kiosk.
