Alleles Design Studio's Fashionable Prosthetics
‘The Alleles’ design studio was founded in an effort to create affordable and accessible prosthetic covers for lower limb amputees. This product was designed with the intention of fitting onto one’s existing endoskeletal prosthesis to create the form of a leg without the need of going to a clinic. They wanted to create a different experience for their clients by removing the product from the medical realm to act more as a personal statement and fashion accessory. Their goal is to do for prosthetic limbs what a previous generation of fashion designers did for the eyeglass industry. Amputees will now have cosmetic options beyond flesh-toned foam and silicon.
