Auto -distractor innovation: Rice University Vs Prasad Kulakarni

Undergraduate students of Rice university developed Linear Distractor LinDi to automate the process of lengthening children bone. It is an innovation of great importance and the students have done a great job. This takes me back to Prasad Naryan Kulkarni innovation `Auto- Distractor' supported under TePP, the first project to be supported  under both Phase-1 and Phase-II. This innovation was covered widely in Indian press and in my article `The Bottom of Pyramid Innovations' .  Hope the students of Rice university are aware of Indian innovation.
