World-class Voice Prosthesis for $1

When Dr. U.S. Vishal Rao, a Bengaluru-based oncologist, saw how many stage four throat cancer patients struggled to afford expensive imported voice prosthesis to be able to speak again, he decided to do something about it.

Costing only $1, the device has helped 200 people to regain their voices and is expected to reach thousands more in the coming years, with the World Health Organization and nine other countries already expressing interest in the product.
