The alternative limb project 10-01



The Alternative Limb Project offers a personal and friendly bespoke service, which provides unique prosthetics  to blend in with the body or stand out as a unique piece of art, reflecting the wearer’s imagination, personality and interests.

We will involve the wearer in all stages of the process from conception of ideas to the final work.

An alternative-style limb can help to break down social barriers, delight the eye and provide an unusual talking point.



The realistic limbs


With an eye for fine detail, Sophie will sculpt life like limbs to match your sound side.

Silicone can be made translucent like skin
Colours can be matched to your sound side
Creases , blemishes, freckles and veins can be reproduced
Nail colours and shapes can be simulated (nail varnish can be used and removed )
Comfort gel pads can be incorporated into the prosthesis
Build ups can be made for correcting alignment or for adjusting height discrepancies

Whilst some limbs are considered passive prosthetics (no mechanical movement ) they  still have important functional capabilities. This includes actions such as pushing, pulling, stabilizing, supporting, light grasping and typing.
