Bespoke Prosthetics

Having worked with amputees in a previous career, I was blown away by Bespoke Prosthetics.  Prosthetics are generally purely functional.  Designed to be light, and serve their purpose (ie. help regain mobility).  It is rare for a prosthetic to be what we would call “beautiful”.  And when we think of this, the loss of a limb to someone is so much more than just their mobility.  People can be very self conscious of how the prosthetic looks, often wanting to cover it up and hide it from society.  So seeing the incredible designs by Bespoke really gets you thinking of what is possible in this field.

There’s a great interview on core77 (where I found out about this company)
