the ALLELES Design Studio provides creative and accessible prosthetic covers for lower limb amputees. Being influenced by the eyeglass industry, they are using design to bring prosthetic covers into a new stream of fashion.
The covers are made out of different types of ABS plastic. After much material exploration, ABS has proven to have some pretty great properties including being: durable, lightweight, flexible, cleanable, and easily modifiable.
You can choose from a multitude of ready-to-wear styles or design your own. There’s a large selection of colors to choose from as well – including pink, blue, yellow, red, gun metal, neons and silver.
Alleles has designed a very simple strapping mechanism that attaches to ones prosthesis in 2-3 different places. The straps are made out of leather and can accommodate various different shapes and sizes; ie. sockets, pylons, clamps, a variety of knee components, etc.
