aviya serfaty: prosthetic leg for women

‘outfeet’ by aviya serfaty

‘outfeet’ by recent industrial design graduate aviya serfaty is a new prosthetic leg designed especially for amputee women. recognizing that most prosthesis available on the market today are bad imitations of a natural leg, or are simply thin steel poles that disregard the female body silhouette altogether, ‘outfeet’ aims to embrace the idea of a prosthesis not only as a medial device but also as a fashion accessory.

the product’s first focus is to meet the wide variety of needs in day to day life: the design features adjustable knobs that create artificial arches in the sole to adapt to whatever occasion, from simple commuting to sports. a separate high heel component can also be added for an evening look. there is also a collection of flexible skins that can be stretched over the carbon fiber body to give the leg a different look and silhouette without overbearing the prosthesis with additional weight.
