IF you google or yahoo search "soda bottle prosthesis", you might see the idea was already known to many people. It was also published in the journal of "Prosthetics and Orthotics International" after it was presented at the ISPO World COngress in Vancouver in 2007. The idea was a part of the RERC projects at the Center for International Rehabilitation, which was funded by the NIDRR.
