Cosmetic cover for prosthetic leg

The cosmetic cover for a prosthetic leg is a modern solution for personalising the appearance of the prosthetic according to the wearer’s lifestyle and taste. The cover provides a protective function by covering the prosthetic and creating the stylised look of a leg. The cover’s shape is individually designed and customised to suit the wearer's legs and the size of the prosthetic components. The cover is enriched with a pattern selected by the customer, thereby demonstrating that the absence of the leg is no reason to hide from the world and the opportunities that it provides. The design is adapted for digital, wasteless manufacturing with the goal of conserving materials and time; the high-quality print is applied with a hobby-class 3D printer that is produced in Latvia.
