At the rehabilitation centre, we provide 10 different types of prosthesis. One of our achievements at the centre was treating a patient using Hip Disarticulation Prosthesis. Pintu Patel lost his complete leg that could not be replaced with any type of lower limb prosthesis. Our development team in the prosthesis department came out with a solution, and we were able to fit HD prosthesis. Thus, becoming the only institute in India that provides free of cost HD modular prosthesis.
ThakurSehdev is another patient at JAHRC who helped us set an example of excellence and dedication of our work. He was a bilateral patient and needed two different prosthesis; for him, we developed Special Extensive Prosthesis of different measures. After a week of alignment and training, he was able to walk properly. At JAHRC, we not only believe in providing physical aid to our patients but also in providing emotional and mental support to boost their confidence, helping them to rehabilitate in society.
People like Pintu Patel and ThakurSehdev are our heroes and inspiration to work, who instil faith in us and motivate us to travel an extra mile to give hope and realise dreams of many specially-abled people.
AK1 (Above Knee Prosthesis 1)
At JAHRC, AK1 prosthesis are made using carbon fibre socket and single-axis knee. Single-axis knee aids balance and supports the weight of the body. It helps people with disability to balance well and lead a normal and healthy life. Single-axis knee helps in providing easy movement so that people can manage their work without needing physical support from anyone. We use ManakAdapter and supportive equipmentat JAHRC for our prosthesis. We also make our prosthesis to be user-friendly and water-resistant for making the lives of specially-abled people simpler.
