FAQs

Q). What are the covers made of?

Answer

All our covers are made of a high grade thermoplastic polymer, known for its strength and durability. It is used in a wide variety of applications from car dashboards and fire brigade face shields to kettles and microwaveable food containers.

It doesn’t react with water, detergents, acids, or bases, so it won’t break down easily. It’s resistant to cracking and stress, even when flexed, and it is impact resistant, so it stands up to daily wear and tear.

We chose this material as it is very robust, flexible and forms our designs perfectly with a high degree of accuracy.

Q). What do the covers weigh?

Answer

Depending on size and design, the covers are very lightweight and only weigh between 180-290g. As a amputee myself, I can’t feel any weight difference with my cover on or off.

Q). How durable are the covers?

Answer

All our covers are designed and built with durability in mind. During our development, we tested the covers in a controlled environment for reaction to temperature extremes, flexibility and impact resistance to make sure our product would not only look great but would withstand the rough and tumble of real life.

We are so confident about durability we offer a no quibble 12 month breakage warranty. (Paint and wraps not included)

Q). How are the covers finished?

Answer

Depending on your design selection, the covers can be unpainted, painted in a colour from our colour palette, hydro-dipped in a range of finishes from carbon fibre to flames, or painted with any design you can imagine and finished with a protective clear topcoat.

Q). How do the covers attach?

Answer

LIMB-art covers come with two strong, slightly elastic straps. To attach your cover, simply strap it around your prosthetic leg and tighten the strap. This will keep it in place and stop it from turning round or riding up.

The straps are easy to use and allow you to be able to swap and change covers to suit your outfit or mood.

Q). Are Limb-art covers Eco-Friendly?

Answer

Thermoplastic polymers are recyclable.

They can be melted and reformed into plastic pellets that can then be used to make new products, so breaking away from the disposable stereotype it can be recycled and stay out of landfills.

It’s tough. It’s durable. It’s recyclable.

Q). How long will it take to get my cover?

Answer
