The possible uses for 3D printed objects could be game changing for many industries and one of these possibilities can already be foreseen right now. 3D printed prosthetic fairings from Bespoke Innovations, a company from San Francisco, are created for amputees, in an effort to offer them something that restores the symmetry of their bodies. Since prosthetics are far from perfect, they are a bit more than crutches, but they are far from being as good looking as a real leg. 3D printed prosthetic fairings could offer amputees a better designed prosthetic, that has the same dimensions as the real thing and they look better as well. They are designed for each person individually, so they will be different in the way they look.
The cost of this custom made 3D printed fairing is between $4,000 and $6,000. They are created according to the wishes and the needs of the client, as well as the chosen materials. If only one of the legs is missing, the company will do a 3D scan of the existing leg and will create the fairing which goes over the regular prosthetic based on that scan. Basically, the company will make your prosthetic look better with the help of 3D technology.
