Fashionable prosthetic covers at Rio

Postby out in space on Sat Aug 06, 2016 8:25 pm

A small B.C. company is looking to change the way amputees are seen, and will be showing off their creations on the world stage at Rio this summer. Victoria-based Alleles design studio creates fashionable prosthetic covers that allow amputees to express their own style. The covers are made of a polymer plastic and clip around the prosthesis.

Brilliant and takes away any stigma of the prosthetic that people may have. I have seen them around town and they are truly an art of work. Next will be clothing to match, I'm just surprised no one thought of this earlier.
