BMVSS: Impacting Lives with a No-Cost Business Model

Jaipurfoot grants free and affordable artificial prosthesis and rehabilitation aids to amputees and people with disabilities. This transforms the physical and economic condition, as well as enables social reintegration of people who are not only physically-challenged, but also living in poverty.

Benefits of Jaipur Foot

Around the world, both developed and developing countries have commended JaipurFoot for being the most efficient, cost-effective, and user-friendly artificial prosthesis. People are discovering that JaipurFoot offers more functionality and quality compared with other limbs prosthetics services and providers.

Trudging Towards Afghanistan with Jaipur Foot

Jamila Afghan, deputy minister for labour, social affairs, martyrs and disabled, visited Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS) in Jaipur last February, 2016. BMVSS is known as the advocate and makers of prosthetic and artificial limbs, specifically Jaipur Foot, and is the world’s largest nonprofit organization serving people with disabilities.

Improving Quality of Life with Jaipur Foot Artificial Limbs

The biggest hurdle that many amputees and limb-impaired patients face is mobility. There are various reasons why they endure such a loss; this may be due to an accident, innate malformation or disease. But thanks to medical technology, prosthetics and artificial limbs are transforming the lives of people with disabilities by helping them salvage the use and function of their limbs they have lost.

Value Elements of BMVSS

BMVSS tries to help all categories of disabled. However, its focus is on the poor disabled who remain deprived of limbs, aids and appliances under the existing unaffordable health care system. The philosophy of BMVSS is to consider the need of the disabled rather than his capacity to pay. In the above-mentioned backdrop, it is the avowed policy of BMVSS to provide artificial limbs, calipers and all other rehabilitation aids and appliances (like wheelchairs, hand-paddled tricycles, crutches, etc) to all its beneficiaries TOTALLY FREE OF COST.
