application-specific
Explanation:
application-specific prototypes; prototypes designed with specific application(s) in mind / ... to suit practical application(s).

closely relevant to their applications


Explanation:
Just another possibility: praxisnah can be translated as practically relevant or relevant to practice. If I were trying to come as close as possible to the original, I might try prototypes that are closely relevant to their applications.
