Alleles Changing the Prosthetic Design Game
The ALLELES Design Studio acts as a disruptive technology in the prosthetic cover game. The made to order fairings are fashionable, affordable and made out of ABS Plastic or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) starting at $320.00. According to Creative Mechanisms, ABS is an opaque thermoplastic and amorphous polymer, that's not biodegradable but is easily recycled. Creative Mechanisms also suggests that ABS is "relatively harmless" and often used for 3D printing and developing prototypes. Learn more about ABS. I've had the chance to style models wearing ABS including Canadian Paralympian Michelle Salt, who was one of five models in the fashion show at the end of my TEDx Talk. Here a few of the designs, I just wanted you to get an idea of the incredible work McCauley and Ryan are doing.
