HP 3D Printing Allows LIMB-Art to Bring Newfound Style to Prosthetics

North Wales, 13 August, 2019 – LIMB-Art, a UK design and manufacturing company, is using the HP Jet Fusion 3D 4200 in alliance with service bureau Design Reality to produce eye-catching, beautiful prosthetic leg covers. Thanks to HP’s technology, LIMB-Art can create unique, clever designs for quick delivery, at a cost point that is not prohibitive.

Founded in 2018 by former Paralympic swimmer and medallist Mark Williams, and his wife Rachael, LIMB-Art was born out of an overwhelming desire to help other prosthetic users raise confidence regarding their appearance.

“Working with HP and Design Reality means that we can move away from traditional production methods, where we’d typically use an injection mould one design at a time, limiting our customer base and available styles,” said Mark Williams, director and owner of LIMB-Art.
“We can now uniquely print any shape or pattern we want with HP Jet Fusion technology, which enables endless customisation and limitless creativity. HP Jet Fusion technology really sets us apart from the competition and has enabled us to sell into the NHS and gain support from leading prosthetic manufacturers like Otto-Bock.”
