Jaipur Foot is a renowned one for its facilitation in changing lives of many physically challenged people worldwide. The development of the Jaipur Foot proved to be a remarkable triumph in the history of prosthetic foot. A prosthetic foot is an artificial limb, which is located for replacing the missing extremity.

Jaipur Foot was developed in 1968, which was then carried forward by the Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti for social cause, in 1975. Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti has been working for humanitarian purposes from many years.

One thought of prosthetic foot has changed the lives of many families. A person who is physically challenged suffers along with the family, in almost every field of life. Such helpless people are being aided by the Samiti. This social organization provides artificial limbs, wheelchairs, crutches, calipers, hand-paddled tricycles, ambulatory aids, and other aids and pieces of equipments to physically challenged people, free of cost.

As per the research done under the direction of Goutam Reddy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, “The Jaipur Foot is low-cost, durable, waterproof, and can be used with or without shoes. Jaipur Foot, named after the place where it was designed, is flexible along multiple axes, which allows natural movement of the foot. The Jaipur Foot technology is based on traditional craft using small local production methods. It has already helped over 900,000 amputees in developing and landmine-affected countries.”

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has joined hands with the organization of Jaipur Foot. Jaipur Foot organization, fits the largest amount of prosthetic foots in the world. The organization has sixteen branches for Limb/Caliper making, and 9 Permanent Satellite centers. It has done foot fitments in 22 foreign countries.

The thought of creating Jaipur Foot was first contemplated by Mr. Ram Chandra Sharma who devised and developed the limb and the foot. These limbs are manufactured keeping in view, all factors such as cost, flexibility etc. It is manufactured with such a technology that it resembles almost like natural limb.

The limb is so efficient that a person can walk like a normal person and sit in a cross legs position. It helps them to go back to their jobs and earn for their families.
