The Alternative Limb Project has taken an unconventional stance when it comes to prosthetic legs. Instead of focusing on function or realism, the project has introduced style. This has widened the market for prosthetic limbs to a new level.

The prosthetics possess a wonderful steampunk look and feel with elements of futurism and Victorian-style. They would certainly match a variety of wardrobes as depicted in the images.

This frame of mind by The Alternative Limb Project is brilliant. It encourages people to embrace their differences, rather than try to hide them. Amputees sometimes want to feel normal and that is cool too, but this option lets people be who they are -- there's no shame in it at all. Stats for Fashion-Focused Prosthetics Trending: Older & Warm
