Ottobock, headquartered in Duderstadt, Germany, and US based in Austin, Tex, and UNYQ, based in San Francisco, have recently teamed up to provide cosmetic covers for lower-limb prosthetics.

A media release from UNYQ notes that the first three designs of the “UNYQ designed for Ottobock” collection are called “Coral, “Reed, and “Camellia,” and they have been inspired by current color and fashion trends.

The release explains that the “Coral” design reflects the silence of a coral reef and the brilliance of deep ocean colors. The “Reed” design is simple and elegant, resembling the filigree structure of a blade of grass. The playful and feminine “Camellia” design captures the essence of a rose garden.

All three designs are available in different color combinations and with different finishing options.

“We hope to cater to a broad range of tastes with these editions, wishing that they enable amputees to bring their very own fashion statement to the prosthetic technology Ottobock provides,” says Dr Falk Berster, business unit director, Ottobock, in the release.

Eythor Bender, CEO, UNYQ, notes in the release that, “These designs are the first fruits of a very creative collaboration, and we are just at the beginning of this exciting journey. Amputees can now look forward to more choice in the form of Special Editions designed to reflect the Ottobock visual product language.”

Per the release, these 3D-printed covers include newly designed knee bumpers to help protect the covers from scratches, and will be exclusively available with the covers for the first 12 months.
