How we do it

From the year 2000 onwards, Mukti started manufacturing most of the core components needed for the artificial limbs by its own team of technicians at its Centre in Chennai. This process fetched us at MUKTI, benefits in two ways. We had the satisfaction of providing quality components in the artificial limbs that are provided free of cost to the amputees, and we were able to train physically and mentally challenged persons in making Mukti foot. The entire workforce of Mukti Foot Unit consists of challenged persons and mentally challenged persons.

When we came to know that the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics based in Copenhagen in Denmark conducts performance tests on various components of Artificial limbs and issues Performance Certificate, we contacted them with a request to test and evaluate Mukti foot. Accordingly, it was tested and certified on par with International Quality Standard by International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics, ISPO Headquarters, Denmark.

Artificial Limbs:

Each artificial limb or caliper is custom fabricated based on the deformity and dimensions of the person concerned. A plaster mould of the amputee’s limb is made and then the industrial polymer stem/leg is prepared based on the mould. The Mukti foot is affixed along with other accessories and adjusted meticulously as per individual specifications. Similarly each pair of caliper is also custom fabricated.
