French Designer Conceives Prosthetic Leg Specifically Made For Soccer

soccer 1

French product designer Aurélien Dantin has designed a prosthetic leg specifically made for playing soccer.

Inspired by Martin Hofbauer, the 20-year-old amputee who became the first amputee to play in FIFA competition this past May, Dantin's design features a linen fiber socket with a depressurization system to secure the knee comfortably, while the foot is built to absorb shock and allows for twists and kicks.
