Designer Colin Matsco created a Nike prosthetic leg for an athletic young man who wanted to maintain his active lifestyle. In All the Cool Kids Wear Air Jordan Prosthetics, Billy May of Yanko Design writes:
3D printing has become an incredibly powerful tool to customize one-off products for differing applications. This project was based on using this technology to design a customized prosthetic leg for a specific user- a young, urban, male athlete. Nike was chosen as an appropriate brand to bring form to the leg. It also required familiarizing oneself with the emotional, medical, lifestyle, and physical changes the user would encounter.
