Th average cost for a prosthetic leg in America ranges between $6000 - $8000 and athletic or advanced models can soar upwards of $35,000. Bear in mind due to daily use, wear and tear dictates a limb should be replaced every three to four years to avoid injury. If you’re going to spend that kind of money on a necessary part of yourself, it may as well reflect who you are as a person.
According to Bespoke Innovations:
Each of our bodies is unique, as are our tastes and styles. Humans are anything but one-size-fits-all, and we want to recognize that fact. We achieve this by creating products that allow our clients to personalize their prosthetic legs. Our hope is to enable our clients to emotionally connect with their prosthetic limbs, and wear them confidently as a form of personal expression. Our products turn something ordinary into something amazing.
Each leg costs between $4,000 and $6,000 and is completely customizable. Metal prosthetics weigh in around 18 ounces or approximately the same as 3 iPhones.
