Artificial lower limbs, which are inexpensive (about $25USD) to make and designed for the rural lifestyle, are manufactured by village people trained by experts in the field. Camps throughout India and other developing countries have provided over 11,000 amputees with artificial limbs at virtually no cost, thanks to the support of various charitable organizations and individual donors.
These prosthetic devices are not designed for cosmetic purposes but rather for the survival of the amputees and their families. The use of an artificial limb/s allows an amputee to work and live a normal and independent life.
