Eythor Bender wants prosthetic limbs to express the wearer’s personality. So he’s launched UNYQ, which lets customers design their own prosthetic.
“We are about restoring the body shape and the symmetry and aligning to your body as much as possible,” Bender said. He noticed how stylish and trendy eyeglasses have become, and knew that energy could be brought to prosthetics.
For customers who have lost both legs, UNYQ offers several existing models.
Bender’s currently selling in the United States and Europe, where select customers have already been testing out the prosthetics. Most cost about $1,000, but designing your own limb is $2,000.
