Sponsor A Orthotics/Prosthetics
Potential rehabilitative clients are introduced to Operation Equip India’s services through several community based activities. Services that could be provided to a client with a disability are:
1. Surgical interventions—in partnership with local surgeons
2. Physical therapy at the Rehabilitation Center
3. Orthosis and Prostheses which includes leg braces, ankle/foot orthosis, as well as other devices
4. Provision of wheelchairs, crutches, and other mobility aids
On the rough, often unpaved roads of India’s villages, the rural disabled require a tough, affordable vehicle that can get them around. The answer is found in a tri-cycle that is propelled by hand peddles. OEI employs local manufactures to make these sturdy tri-cycles from materials found in any local bicycle shop so that maintenance is affordable.
