Empresa de moda faz capas de prótese super estilosas para pessoas amputadas

Ter um membro amputado não precisa significar acabar de vez com o seu estilo. Mas será que dá para continuar arrasando no visual mesmo usando uma prótese? É claro que sim, como comprova a empresa canadense Alleles, que cria capas fashionistas para quem usa próteses.

Os diversos estilos de capas oferecidos pela empresa buscam acabar com aquele visual robótico que a maioria das próteses tem e oferecer estilos coloridos e divertidos para quem não quer ficar sempre igual. As peças custam a partir de 325 dólares canadenses (pouco mais de R$ 800) e podem chegar a mais de 1.500 dólares canadenses (ou R$ 3.800) no caso de peças personalizadas.

As opões de capas incluem desde estampas florais até estilos mais sóbrios, perfeitos para ir a uma festa, por exemplo. E você nunca imaginou que usar uma prótese pudesse ser tão estiloso.

Olha só que lindas as criações da Alleles!

The story of @biancairis PART ONE of TWO. . . I lost my leg when I was 23 years old. That’s a critical time in a person’s life when they are still figuring out who they are and coming into themselves. I was devastated, naturally. I was almost more concerned with my new “aesthetics” than the fact that I may never walk again. What was I going to do with all my high heels, mini skirts and dresses? That’s the mind of a 23 year old, I guess. I didn’t really fully understand what this new life would have in store for me. I am a hip disarticulate amputee, what that means is I have no residual limb. This means I have to wear a very big, heavy, bulky and painful prosthetic strapped around my waist to walk. On top of that, I also had a crushed hip and pelvis and I lost a signifcant part of my pelvis as well. Doctors said I would never have the ability to wear a prosthesis or weight bear on my amputated side. The good thing was that at that age, I also had a full amount of stubborness to fuel me. I looked those doctors in the face and said “F YOU! I WILL WALK AGAIN ONE DAY”. It would take me 15 years and 54 surgeries in total to make that happen but I did it! Throughout those 15 years, even though I wasn’t “ready”, I still had prosthetics made and forced myself to walk in them. I wanted to blend in, and look as “normal” as possible. That “normal" was a silicone barbie leg that weighed over 15 lbs that I would walk in. I use the term “walk” very loosely. I would strap my prosthetic on and count each step to my desired landing place and just stand in various places looking like a mannequin in pain, LOL. I also had to wear a pedometer because I knew I had maxium 600-800 steps in me a day. This has been my life up until last February when I had my FINAL hip reconstruction. . .STORY CONTINUED ON NEXT POST. . . .#alleleswomen #bionica #prostheticcover #loudandproud
