An industrial designer (Scott Summit) and an orthopedic surgeon (Kenneth Trauner) founded Bespoke Innovations in 2009, a firm which designs and produces bespoke fairings that fit over pre-existing prosthetic legs. They’re modular, so owners can swap out fairings to fit the fashion needs of different occasions.
Bespoke Innovations creates custom-made fairings that restore the leg contours that many prosthetic legs fail to. These fairings then fit with the customer’s existing prosthetic. Instead of mimicking the look of human skin, however, the Bespoke Fairings are designed to look like something completely distinct, combining colors and patterns that dress up the leg. The idea is to allow customers to express their aesthetics and personality through their prosthetic leg, just as they would through an accessory or article of clothing. The Bespoke Fairings are 3D printed using a durable, lightweight polymer, but can then be fitted with chrome plating, ballistic nylon fabric, or leather, letting customers customize them according to their personal needs and style.
