He's an inventor covered as main subject of an article at NYT, a foundation dependant from smitsonian museum, and a program by MIT. The Smithsonian Institute also has a 2 hour interview with him[1]. See also more than a dozen books on amputations mentioning him[2]. A popular book cites his name when talking of the most popular bionic devices [3]. A book on amputations of lower members picks to speak about his model among all the others on the market "because he was the pioneer" [4] (spanish source)

According to a publication of the Amputee Coalition of America, "Nowadays, more than 90% of the athlets with amputations in all the world wear some model of Flex Foot" [5] (sorry, spanish source) --Enric Naval (talk) 02:45, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
