Water and Sand Proof Cover for Prosthetic Leg

Problem

Water, sand, and other debris get trapped in components of the prosthetic leg and create damage, causing users to need to switch to “water legs” that are very immobile.

Task

Develop a convenient and aesthetically pleasing cover to protect the entire prosthetic leg from water, sand, and other debris. The user should be able to put on and take off the cover easily and independently, and the cover should not interfere with the footwear on the prosthetic foot. Additionally, the cover should be lightweight and compact for easy storage and transportation when it is not being worn.
