Amputees do not have an easy life: everyday activities can be a real struggle, and the prosthetic market is incredibly limited. Glaze believes that this disability is not something to be ashamed of and should be turned into an advantage. The company have found a solution: the Glaze Prosthetic, a fully customized cosmetic arm that allows people unlimited options to create themselves.
The creators of Glaze were inspired by the story of Piotr Sajdak, a contestant on the Polish edition of MasterChef. The passionate cook lost his arm on a night out, defending his friend from harassment. By the end of the night she was alright, but Piotr lost his arm. He didn’t lose his optimism, though, and continued his active lifestyle. Grzegorz Kosch, CEO of Glaze, proposed cooperation with Sajdak, and that’s how the Glaze Prosthetic was born.
Glaze’s main goal is full individualization: starting from shape and colours, to hi-tech accessories and really cool solutions. For example, you can have a fin hand, a built-in speaker, a phone compartment and tattoo skin. Glaze wants amputees to design their new limbs to fit their needs, not only physically, but also mentally. The company doesn’t believe in generic prosthetics: they are too heavy, cause discomfort and eventually end up being discarded. Glaze wants their clients to make the choices. The prosthetic should represent whatever they love most. You can check out all the possibilities on Glaze’s official website.
“We have features suitable for people who love sports, cooking, dancing, swimming, etc. We see amputees as people with loads of interests, and we want to help them improve themselves. Through Glaze, they will gain not only a useful tool, but also more confidence and a chance to turn their life around. After all, what made Iron Man and Batman super heroes was their hi-tech equipment.” —Grzegorz Kosch
In comparison to a regular cosmetic prosthetic, Glaze looks fantastic: modern and simple, yet packed with useful functions. Since it’s measured for every client individually, it will always fit perfectly and cause only happiness!
Glaze will be available to pre-order from 31st of October. If you want to learn more about Glaze Prosthetics, visit the official website.
