What is a Fairing?
Bespoke Fairings™ are specialized coverings that surround an existing prosthetic leg, accurately recreating the body form through a process that uses three-dimensional scanning to capture the unique leg shape. But Fairings not only return the lost contour, they invite an expression of personality and individuality that has never before been possible.
Fairings infuse the individual's lifestyle and taste into the design from the start. But to make this an even more personal part of the prosthetic leg, Fairings can be enhanced with patterns, graphics, and materials—including leather, ballistic nylon fabric, chrome plating, and even tattoos. By creating a unique custom form that presents the individual, Bespoke Innovations hopes to change the way the world thinks of prostheses.

A Fairing is...
A positive experience. Fairings express confidence, creativity and individuality. Fairings help erase the wall of awkwardness that can disconnect the amputee from the world around. Fairings invite interest, but for all the right reasons. An uncomfortable glance is now an admiring gaze.
Customized. Fairings are designed for, and with, the amputee. The wearer is invited to choose from a library of patterns and graphics, or add custom text. They may choose a specific finish, such as ballistic nylon, leather or mirror-polished metal for a dazzling effect. Tattoos can even be laser-etched into leather or embossed into the polymer surface for a sculpted look. This represents the opposite of 'one-size-fits-all'—Bespoke creates the Fairings specifically for the wearer, working with their style and their body. It doesn't get more personal than that.
Modular. Fairings include a front part and a back part which are easily and quickly swapped to suit lifestyle and activity. Going out on the town? Choose the metalized back and black leather front. Out on a stroll or running errands? A lightweight polymer-front Fairing may be combined with an easily cleaned, ballistic nylon-wrapped back. That pick-up game of rugby? A durable and lightweight polymer Sport Fairing holds up to abuse and can even be washed for wearing out to a social engagement after the game. Bespoke is ready to create the perfect Fairing for any lifestyle. With endless design options, the possibilities don’t stop.
Durable. Bespoke uses high-quality, durable materials to enhance the appearance of the Fairings. And since removing Fairings from the prosthesis only takes about a minute, cleaning is easy. Sport Fairings are extra rugged, and the black or white polymer material is even dishwasher safe. The polished metal plating resists scratching and buffs quickly to a mirror shine.
Lightweight. Fairings are ‘3D printed’ using a strong, flexible, and lightweight polymer. Metalized parts weigh a bit more, though actual weights depend entirely on how the individual designs the Fairing.
