And I thought bubble wrap was just for fun!…
(Okay, and maybe for wrapping things prior to shipping.)
But Nashville, Tennessee’s Grayson Rosenberger found the best use of all!…
This 5th grader from Franklin Road Academy found a way to use bubble wrap as an “artificial skin” for amputees.
Yep, Grayson Rosenberger invented a one-of-a-kind cosmetic covering for prosthetic legs.
Grayson’s mother, Gracie Rosenberger, lost her legs as the result of injuries suffered in a 1983 traffic accident. Instead of allowing that to defeat her, she and husband Peter founded Standing With Hope, a ministry that reaches out in music and prayer to amputees. They recently expanded outside the U.S. to a clinic in Ghana, where prosthetic legs are custom-built for the poor.
Later this year, Grayson will visit Ghana with his parents to fit some patients with his low-cost invention.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
