Tag Heuer Prosthetic Leg by Koo Ho Shin

The idea of new prosthetic started from people’s perception of prosthetic legs; both the amputees and “spectators: which is a sad reality but true”. Prosthetic has been developed based on the understanding of body anatomy and movement, but since it neglects the lifestyle, satisfaction, or personality of the amputee, this vital device for human activity still remains in a stage of “a landing gear”, or sometimes C3PO or Robo-cop.

The social acceptance is based on how much the prosthetic resembles human leg, but there hasn’t been any active movement to bring prosthetic leg from a utilitarian gear to a highly fashionable accessory that reflects the amputee’s taste, possibly a prosthetic that he/she want to show off, and don’t have to bear with people looking at them pathetically anymore.

The demand of prosthetic leg could go higher due to accidents, wars, and mostly, aggressive increase of type 2 Child diabetes, which is unfortunate but opens more possibilities to enable personalized mass manufacturing. Therefore, this prosthetic concept is designed around the 3D scanned data of the real person’s leg; Once the real leg is scanned, the data can be modified according to the condition of the limb, which makes the prosthetic “my leg”.Tag Heuer, co-brand company of this prosthetic design which has sporty, bold but elegant high-end products, has a long history of preciseness and accuracy, and has been a great sponsor for various sports activities. The design follows how we see a watch; usually hidden behind the sleeves but reveals and shines occasionally when he/she moves. This prosthetic Tag Heuer’s bold taste, but still hides the complex detail mechanism.

Hi, I’m a prosthetist working in the uk(i.e. i fit the prosthetic limb)

I was wondering how the knee itself functions as i can’t really see any form of braking mechanism or swing adjustment. Any info would be appreciated and also, dependent upon how well the knee works, how are we supposed to justify to the nhs prescribing this knee due to the “fashionable aspect”

    hello sir, i am victim of an accident.I live in Nepal. Could you please help me to find donor to place lower limb before knee. If yes please contact me. dineshghi@live.com

I am a double leg amputee in the USA – AK/Knee Disartic – and I don't give a monkey's about the fashion bit. I want functiuon and I am quite proud of the metal (and carbon fiber) bits.

Looking at the design, it appears that trouser legs would get caught on the non-functional device that fakes a shin.

I want a) function b) comfort and c) no REPEAT no batteries. Fashion is irrelevant.

    fare play
    mate.I've just started scanning the net trying to get some descent info on legs .I lost both my legs below the knee and the ones they gave me from the hospital just never fit right.
    Everywhere I look they seem to be more concerned at how they look rather than what the legs can do,or how they fit.which is the most important thing. good luck. steve. England

Pauline Duncan-Thras says: April 16, 2009

I'm sure that my stepson who was born with no leg and a not so great other leg would most relate with the comment from Hugh Elliot who is far more concerned about function and comfort than style. mark has been trying to adapt to a very expensive 6 month old new knee that does not provide the flexibility that he needs to walk without tripping.Because his socket is so tiny his good side is bearing the brunt when he has to swing his prosthetic leg forward.After 30 years of walking this way his whole leg is suffering. Any suggestions from the maker of the Tag Heur leg?

lane mcginnis says: October 5, 2010

Hello I'm 19 and a right leg amputee in the USA

I think that modern prosthetic are a very inefficient about all they can do is bend on pressure that on the food and then breaks the knee so its very limited on what you can do with it… so what I'm wondering is with all are so called modern technology why can you tack the idea of what there doing with prosthetic arms http://www.dekaresearch.com/deka_arm.shtml and use the technology to make prosthetic knee bend on though and not on pressure that wood change everything in my opinion… The leg code possibly fit anyone lifestyle..
