Jaipur Limb Project - It is a pro-active fund-raising and project-initiating body of Rotarians, drawn from all over RIBI (the Rotary International region covering Britain and Ireland). It was formed in 1985 and became a registered charity in 1995. Jaipur Limb is an artificial leg, developed at the Mahaveer hospital in Jaipur, India. The unique component is the Jaipur foot, a clever combination of wood and various densities of rubber vulcanised into a realistic looking brown foot.
The Jaipur limb is hard-wearing and will last for three or four years, longer if worn with a shoe.
One of the major differences between the Jaipur technology and western technology is the cost - whereas a western limb will cost between £1,000.00 and £2,000.00, a Jaipur limb can be made and fitted for as little as £25.00.
