The Jaipur Limb is a one-stop facilities and the patients who come are measured and their custom-made limb/caliper are fabricated and fitted, without making them visit again a second time. it is so efficient that after this limb is fitted, a person can walk like a normal person without a stick or support, and even run, ride a bicycle and climb a tree. After the fitment many of the patients can go back to work in the field, factories, shops and offices.
