Amputees Style Custom Limbs

Bespoke Innovations was founded in 2009 by Industrial Designer Scott Summit and Orthopedic Surgeon Kenneth Trauner. Their mission is to ‘bring more humanity to people who have congenital or traumatic limb loss’ [source].

Bespoke Innovations build and design fairings, specialized coverings that surround an existing prosthetic leg, accurately recreating the body form through a process that uses three-dimensional scanning to capture the unique leg shape. Fairings are designed for, and with, the amputee. The wearer is invited to choose from a library of patterns and graphics, and can even add customized text and detailing. They may also choose specific finishes, such as ballistic nylon, leather or mirror-polished metal.
