The founder of custom innovation has set up a display area to showcase his custom body parts.
Bright and bright white shelves are lined with feet, calves and entire legs made of sturdy but flexible plastic.
Summit built these products for amputees and provided them with a design for a hodgepodge machine that goes beyond traditional artificial limbs.
\"We are now working on this person from Israel,\" Summit said . \".
\"We are designing a Porsche 911 for him.
This is a very classic design with clear lines and timeless details.
We \'ve just made three other legs for three people in Germany to reflect their very unique personality.
\"Summit and his team at Bespoke have developed a whole new way of thinking and making artificial limbs.
Summit will use a scanner to capture the shape of an existing leg of a person and convert it to a 3D image on the computer.
The image is the basis for the new leg that the summit will design and then send it to a 3D printer that turns the leg into a real object. (
For more information on how the 3D printer works, check out my recent features on the technology. )
A custom leg takes about one leg.
The traditional prosthesis costs as much as $60,000 to $75,000, but it still has advanced features like locking the knee and ankle joints that bend with pressure.
In addition to these foundations, Bespoke will also create an artistic boom that truly separates legs.
In his office, Summit took out samples of different looks that he could print in plastic
Everything from flowers to forgingiron patterns.
He also described the metal, leather and plastic caseor fairings—
He can wrap his legs around to make them stand out.
Look at it yourself.
In 2010, I first wrote about Summit\'s work, and since then, he has received worldwide attention.

Cost, dishwasher-safe limbs.
The next customized is the insurance plan to cover the cost of its sweet limbs.
