A strong voice against animal cruelty, Devendra Raj Mehta, chief patron and founder of Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS) and a Trustee of Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organisations (FIAPO), had set up a BMVSS facility to produce artificial limbs specifically for disabled animals. In fact, BMVSS has successfully developed artificial limbs for amputee animals, particularly cows. "Jaipur Foot has successfully tested the artificial limbs on amputee cows," said D.R. Mehta.
The Jaipur Foot is known to have helped millions of amputees around the world walk again. But what do you know about the Jaipur Hand? The Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS), the world’s largest organization helping people with disabilities, is developing the Jaipur Hand in partnership with Stanford University, USA.
Bhagwan Mahaveer Vikalang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS), renowned creators of the world-famous Jaipur Foot, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Centre National D'Appareillage Orthopidique (CNAO). The agreement establishes that an artificial limb camp will be in Senegal, West Africa in December this year. About 500 people with physical disabilities will be provided with artificial limbs during the camp.
Jaipur Foot will now make its way into Myanmar to help the local, disabled people regain their mobility again. Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS), renowned creators of the Jaipur Foot, will establish an artificial limb fitting camp in Yangon, Myanmar in October this year.
Prosthetics are artificial body parts designed for different purposes. Usually custom-made to fit the needs of patients, these artificial devices help patients restore their mobility that they have lost due to accidents or medical conditions.
For patients who recently had an amputation will notice that their limbs have likely just began healing. To gain mobility again, the idea of fitting themselves with prosthetic limbs has started to sink in. Thanks to modern medical technology and Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS), the renowned makers of Jaipur Foot, plenty of people in India and abroad can live normal lives with an artificial prosthesis. BMVSS is the world's largest organization that aids people with disabilities.
With the emergence of new technologies, it’s evident that our lives will be improved and transformed. There are open windows of opportunity all around us, especially for the handicapped - the ones who have lost their limbs due to accident or illness.
Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS), renowned makers of Jaipur Foot, continues being a leading social changemaker at Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.
During a recent event, entitled “Finding the Forgotten Ones,” five engineering students partnered with US-based NGO Help One Walk (HOW) International to put on a presentation telling the California Polytechnic (Cal Poly) community about their experiences in Mozambique. They met an amputee named Florencia, who had lost her leg from a mine in her local village.
HOW International, a USA-based, non-governmental organization committed to providing free prosthetics to landmine victims in Mozambique, Africa, is partnering with Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS) to rehabilitate people with disabilities and enable them to integrate back into society.
