A fake leg. It's plastic, and if someone ever lost a leg they could put one under their jeans so they would look like they have two legs instead of one.

When you think of prosthetics, our mind most likely will gave us the impression of lack in humanity, grace, and style. This product has an image of an uncomfortable landing gear which might gives the wearer an unpleasant feeling of comfort. This Eames-inspired prosthetic leg by Joanna Hawley is surprisingly made of high quality materials which offers a stylish, and iconic balanced prosthetics both positively and negatively. Based on years of survey on the disabled community and supported by the research and design from several different color specialists and 3D laser professionals, this product has been invented. A product with a focus on the human body adaptability indeed.

It's an artificial leg that consists of several components.

The socket is what fits to the person's residual limb or stump. It can be suspended by various forms of suction or by a belt or suspension sleeve. The Amputee might wear sump socks made of silicone, wool, cotton, or other materials and in the case of pure suction no liner or sock is used.

The socket is usually made out of Fiberglass, and many today have softer inner sockets that allow for a comfortable fit.

If the amputee is an above knee amputee the next part is the knee unit. There are lots to choose from depending on the needs of the amputee. I use the Otto Bock C-leg which is a high end computerized knee that assists in providing a smooth gait and control for walking on uneven ground or down stairs. There are hydraulic knees like the Otto Bock 3R60 and 3R80 and there are polycentric knees like the Ossur Total knees. And then there are single axis knees and locking knees and other computerized knees like the Rheo knee by Ossur.

Then you will have a pylon this is where options for shock absorbers come in.

Then there are the feet. There are a wide range of foot options from highly cosmetic feet that look good but that's about it. To high proformance running feet like the Cheetah, or flex run carbon feet. I wear an Elation foot that allows for quick heel height changes so I can wear high heels or flat shoes any time I want.

Next comes the cosmetic options. Sockets can be laminated with any pattern imaginable. There is the option of skin tone or you're favorite T-shirt or patter laminated on. there are also coloured cosmetic sleeve covers which protect the hard socket. I have a tiger patter removable sleeve and a wood grain pattern sleeve I interchange as the mood takes me.

you can have foam or a hard cover. it can be a one piece or a two piece ( which is better for us above knee amps) I'm looking at getting a removable cosmetic cover. As much as I love the look of my blue and silver C-leg I do a lot of theater and I'll need something that looks real for on stage.

There are also a number of silicone options but these rip to shreds and cost a mint.

The cost of a prosthetic leg ranges from $5 thousand to over $50 thousand. I'm told the new Power knee will run you about $75 thousand to $100 thousand.
The last repair on my leg cost more than my university tuition the past two years.

Basically, its a fake leg.
