Losing a limb is devastating. You no longer have your full range of movement and feeling anymore. You also have to deal with the emotional damage it brings, as dismemberment can be a huge shot to the ego and lead to depression.
Some try to combat the negatives of limb loss, like prosthetics designer Scott Summit. He made these incredibly functional and badass looking prosthetic legs for those who lost limbs.
Not only do these limbs function well, but they look really cool. You can visit Scott Summit’s website here to see more examples of his work.
