Main Objective of the Project

For Establishing Prosthetic Institute / Clinic with modern infrastructure and state-of-the-art facilities for fitment of artificial limbs and assistive devices to poor patients.

India has 10 Million Orthopaedically Disabled Persons

India is having about 10 million orthopaedically disabled persons, most of whom are poor and living in rural background where even basic facilities are not available. Government s liberal policies have encouraged the world leaders like Otto Bock of Germany and Endolite of UK, to open their establishments in India, to provide their artificial limbs components so that the disabled patients can now get these state-of-the-art facilities through the Indian Prosthetic Practitioners. But for many patients who are so poor that they cannot even afford the indigenous artificial limb systems, for them the modern & organized facilities are much beyond their means or completely out of reach. These poor patients are treated in most unscientific and primitive camps which provide crude and useless artificial limbs. 

Poor Patients to get Modern Technology and Facilities

There are not adequate funds for these poor patients to be fitted with reasonably useful artificial limbs and get benefited with proper care and treatment with the state-of-the-art facilities, now available in India. Properly fabricated prosthetic devices are necessary for the physical, social and vocational rehabilitation of disabled persons. Government of India, State Govt. and other agencies do have various schemes but these are not enough to cater for the very large number of disabled patients of India. Patients are coming to us from all over India and even abroad. Patients from neighboring countries and other under developed nations also look towards us for support as those countries have much more limited resources than India.

With application of modern technology and facilities now available in India in the disability sector, there have emerged a number of artificial limbs and assistive devices which reduces the effects of disabilities and enhances the physical potential of the physically challenged persons. But the funds, even at Govt. level are quite inadequate to help the poor patients.

Need for Professionals

There is a great need for professionals in the field of fitment of artificial limbs like Prosthetists, Physiotherapists and Rehabilitation technologists. We are also planning an educational institute for imparting education in this field at Diploma, Graduate and Post Graduate levels.

In addition to above we need a Modern Operation Theatre plus the expenses to be carried out on Corrective Surgery for congenital deformities, post polio deformities, paraplegic deformities, hospitalization and medicines. We even need a Mobile Prosthetic Clinic van equipped with all modern gadgets, so that facilities could be provided to the patients at door step even at the remotest areas.

Activities of Jyot Charitable Trust
