About


ART4LEG. Customized 3D printed prosthetic leg cover.

The ART4LEG cover is shaped into the form of a natural human leg. The unique shape and surface of the cover expresses the lifestyle and character of the person for whom it has been designed. Smooth, patterned, airy and organic designs are used to provide distinctive character and a variety of colours are available for final post-production. The individualized cover is attached to the leg prosthesis in an innovative way using high-powered magnets. These magnets hold the front and back panels tightly together while also making it easy to remove them. The fashionable style and sophisticated functionality of the fairing gives the prosthetic device a brand new dimension.

Technology


The ART4LEG prosthesis fairings are 3D printed from durable plastic on a production series 3D printer.

The custom-made prosthesis fairings are 3D printed from durable plastic on a production series 3D printer. 3D scanning is usually used during the design process and is essential for fine-tuning the fixing mechanism of the cover and for acquiring the anatomical shape of the healthy leg. When the design is ready, our 3D printing expert recommends the most suitable 3D printing technology for the particular cover and prepares the 3D model for the 3D printing itself. Post-processing is needed to achieve the final look of the cover. The fairings are usually painted.
