What we do

Mukti Foot

The Mukti Foot, popularly known as the Jaipur Foot, is manufactured at the Mukti workshop at Chennai. Unlike most traditional feet used, the Mukti Foot is flexible and sturdy and the fulcrum around which the artificial limb is based. Apart from our own needs, the Mukti Foot is supplied at subsidized charges to our affiliates round the world who are committed to provide mobility aids to the needy free of charge.

Mukti started manufacturing most of the core components needed for the artificial limbs fabricated by its own team of people, at its center in Chennai from year 2000 onwards. This process fetched MUKTI benefits in two ways. We had the satisfaction of providing good quality components in our free artificial limbs and we were able to train physically and mentally challenged persons in making Mukti foot. The entire workforce of Mukti foot unit is made up of physically challenged persons and mentally challenged persons.

While browsing the internet we came to know that International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics based in Copenhagen in Denmark conducts performance test on various components of artificial limbs and issue their performance certificate. We contacted Dr. J. Steen Jensen, Hon. Treasurer of the society with a request to test and evaluate Mukti foot which was tested and certified as matching International Quality Standard by International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics ISPO Headquarters, in Denmark.


Artificial Limb & Calipers

Each Prosthesis (Artificial Limb) or Orthosis (Calipers) has to be custom fabricated based on the deformity and dimensions. 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 fine tuned and adjusted for each person. Similarly each pair of calliper is also custom fabricated.
