This company rocks.
A Canadian company in British Columbia is creating fashion-forward prosthetics.
Alleles make decorative covers for prosthetic legs in bold colours and designs that could almost pass for sleeve tattoos. The company got a huge boost when Instagram posted pics of the prosthetics to their own home feed.
One woman (who was featured in a recent Metro article about Alleles) who lost her leg to cancer at 17, said that her prosthetic has changed from being a downer conversation (of “how did you lose your leg”) to a much more positive interaction of people admiring the artwork and creativity.
