ALLELES Design Studio’s mission is to do for prosthetics what fashion did for eyeglasses. These prosthetic leg covers adorn and add a human silhouette to artificial limbs. Intended as a fashion accessory, the goal is to give amputees choice to select from a large variety of colors and patterns and the ability to shop in the same way they choose clothes.
