Indian makes world's first prosthetic legs with cane
July 26, 2016
Indian engineer Arun Cherian has designed prosthetic legs made of cane that are helping people with disabilities walk, run and play.
Cherian, who was doing his thesis in the US, took notice of the cane furniture lying around his house in Kerala and decided on developing it as a prosthetic leg.
He founded the company Rise Legs. He has designed the prosthetics in such a way that they use the cane's flexibility and weight bearing capabilities.
His designs have been used on several people.
