But that was just a part of the story, Debard said “When you are a teenager, it is not that easy to cope with the way people look at you. Often people feel sorry for you.”

Instead of him sitting around and thinking of his predicament, he decided to find a way to hide them from sight and making it difficult for people to know they’re there.

His predicament then led him to creating a startup called Print My Leg. What the company does is to create an open-source blueprints for others who want to follow his path.

With the company you can make and design prosthesis leg that displays of showcases your personality.

He said that “i wrote my first open-source aesthetic with electroluminescent paint that created a glowing eye-catching aesthetic. I then noticed that kids began to approach me with a warm curiosity, rather than fear and discomfort. This is how it should be for all amputees, but still today most prosthetic devices are manually fabricated and costly.”
