Bespoke Fairings are custom-made, stylish covers for prosthetic legs that are created using a 3D scanner. They are designed not only to fit one’s anatomy but also to reflect personal taste and style of the wearer. Users can choose a design through an online tool -- the Configurator -- or collaborate with the team to develop their own individualized look. Bespoke Fairings were recently nominated as a finalist for the 2013 Index: Award.
Unlike the one-size-fits-all mentality that is dominant in the medical device manufacturing industry, the company uses image-based 3D scanning technology to capture the shape of the sound leg and adjust the prosthetic one with the help of the user himself.
He or she can choose a form template, patterns, tattoos, materials and graphics, or they can suggest a new idea. With the help on an online tool, users can explore and apply a range of design styles. One could chose to decorate their new artificial limb with a tattoo or an intricate artwork, and transform a disability into a bold fashion statement.
