  • Légende  : Pics from Caters News - (PICTURED: Dr Karthikeyan Kandan, 40, in his lab at De Montford University where he has developed the process.) A creative professor has come up with a genius way to create prosthetic legs out of plastic bottles - which costs just 10. Whilst working as a mechanical engineering lecturer, Dr Karthikeyan Kandan, 40, discovered that he could grind down plastic bottles to create a material that can be moulded into prosthetic limbs. The process - which includes using the granulated material to spin polyester yarns and heating it to form the limb - costs only 10 in comparison to the industry average of 5000. The first-of-its-kind prosthetic, which is sweat-proof and light-weight, has been successfully tried and tested on amputee students in India. - SEE CATERS COPY - Caters News//CATERSNEWSAGENCY_CATERS_PLASTIC_TO_PROSTHETIC_10/1908231702/Credit:CATERS/SIPA/1908231704
