donation details

The Kendra is well known since 23 years in the field of limb / joint replacement for handicapped people from the lower strata of society. Hospitals and others in this field send beneficiaries to them. The fixing of the limb is done at the Kendra and beneficiaries from out of town can stay for a day and the Kendra takes care of their boarding and lodging. A limb can be fixed in 5 hours by their technician. The Kendra also organises camps for the same, where they first conduct measurements and then fittings. But Give India donations are used for the fittings done at the Kendra, where even the measurements are done there itself. A limb is customised for each person depending on their condition. A Below Knee replacement includes the Calf along with a Jaipur Foot and Ethoflex Padding and Belt. The Jaipur Foot is a combination of wood, pvc and high density rubber with a pink coating. They buy them in bulk in various sizes. The steel and aluminium rods are also purchased and stored at the Kendra. Depending on the need and size of the limb, the limb is customized and fitted using steel aluminum joints with rivets. The Ethoflex material is used for padding; a belt is provided to hold the limb to the waist. They also provide training after the limb is fixed.The limb is durable for a year and needs to be replaced if it breaks in between. In case of children, the limb needs frequent replacement, since they are constantly growing. The necessity of replacing limbs has come down in recent years as polio cases have reduced. But there is still a demand from diabetic people and accident cases. They have fixed 218 below knee limbs in 2010-11. In the year 2011-12 they expected atleast 220 patients.
