Prosthetic limbs are wonderful for restoring mobility to folks who've lost a leg, but form can sometimes get lost in the prosthetic function. One company is producing fairings that fit over a prosthetic leg and serve the same role as a well chosen accessory.
Using rapid prototyping techniques like 3D scanners and printers, Scott Summit's company brings self-esteem back to those who've suffered a limb loss with custom designed coverings that turn prosthetics into stunning pieces of art.
Let's get something straight—amputation is an awful, tragic thing. That being said, these personally customized prosthetic limbs are wonderful in that they make people mobile again—and look like German sports cars. Great industrial design for a great cause.
