The Bulgaria-based company 'Arthesis' has begun producing stylish and affordable prosthetic covers to help make prosthetic leg devices more beautiful. The custom-made covers are designed to function as a form of artistic self-expression and empower the person who wears them.

Each tailor-made Arthesis cover is made from a lightweight material that is durable enough for long-term wear. The prosthetic covers are 3D-printed to wrap around the prosthesis and mirror the shape of a healthy leg. Clients can send their measurements to the company over the Internet and they can request creative designs that they feel will match their individual taste and personality. The covers are easy to slip on and change, meaning the wearer can switch up their cover to suit any occasion.
