This is absolutely wonderful news! The picture above shows the $20 artificial knee … Yep, you heard me, it’s only $20!!!

“A student team at Stanford University, as part of a course called Biomedical Device Design and Evaluation, created an artificial knee that costs less than $20 to manufacture. Already implanted in dozens of people in India, the honorably named JaipurKnee may become as successful an invention as its earlier cousin, the JaipurFoot, after which it was named.” Michael, Medgadget

Now that is true medical entrepreneurship, where innovation and science meet to help those in need. I love it! People like this wonderful team are truly inspirational.
