The loss of a limb leads some to believe that a person can no longer partake in sports, but the Soleis Prosthetic Leg comes as one of several prosthetic legs being observed that thwart this notion. Designed by Thomas Belhacene, the Soleis Prosthetic Leg is intended to provide bobsled athletes with superior performance support during competition. The Soleis Prosthetic Leg provides weight-bearing and energy-returning capabilities as well as offering psychological strengthening by not restricting athletes.

The conceptual Soleis Prosthetic Legs are part of a mission by Belhacene to create a prosthetic that would be used by bobsledders as no other kind of device currently exists. If brought to life, the Soleis Prosthetic Leg could be utilized at the 2018 Winter Olympic games.
