Custoprothetik is founded by Simon Colin. For his thesis of orthopedic studies, he made some colorful and expressive prosthesis. They jury was shocked, but he still wanted to continue his project. He came in contact with a men who was in need for a leg prosthesis. He suggest the man to make a personalized one. Colin only needed someone for the artistic part of the work, so hecalled his friend and graphic artist Emmanuel Wostyn. From now on Custoprothetik was alive.

The main idea of making these prosthesis is to break the taboo. People have to see it like a normal tattoo, but now on a prosthesis. People won’t have to feel uncomfortable anymore, because they now kan talk about the prosthesis as a positive thing. It will break social en psychological barriers. The company sees this project more as a social project than a project to make a lot of profit on.

This company/product is related to the trend of personalization, because you can make the prosthesis your own, just like a tattoo. You can carry your own stories around on your prosthesis and other people wont feel uncomfortable talking about it.
