Testimonials

  • “My whole family visited the Jaipur Foot Center; the lead person explained how the Jaipur foot is designed for a specific patient; once designed, how it is tested and refined to perfection for maximum mobility, convenience, and comfort of the patient. In fact, the main technician was himself a recipient of a full leg prosthetics from RNCT. To our surprise, he demonstrated the utility and flexibility of this prosthetic by jumping off from a high stool without any trouble. We also visited other projects including Food for Education, Garment Distribution, and Vocational training for underprivileged children. We came away with a sense of gratitude for RNCT for the profound nature of the charitable work they perform on a daily basis. We look forward to future opportunities to contribute to these and other noble causes of RNCT.”

  • “The visit to Jaipur Foot Center was very wonderful and heartwarming experience for me. I saw first-hand the fitting of Jaipur Foot on the patients which enabled them to walk and be independent. Some of the patients and their families had travelled far distance. The patients were mainly from the economically under privileged group who could not afford these expenses on their own. The staff at the center was very courteous, helpful, knowledgeable and dedicated to serve the patients.I applaud the Mobility project and Food for Education activities of RNCT to uplift the human spirit. The smiling faces of the beneficiaries as they were leaving the center said it all.

  • “ Our visit to the Jaipur Foot Center, was an extremely rewarding experience for my wife and me. Ashaben briefed us; about how they reach out to different communities to identify candidates needing Jaipur feet or Caliper; the Manufacturing Engineer, explained the materials and process that goes into the making of the Prosthesis. She explained why customization is needed for a smooth transition from the remaining limb to the Prosthesis. A young man, who had lost his leg in a road accident, told us his story and showed us, the use of the Jaipur Foot. Mobility that these devices provide is a tremendous gift to the recipient as well as the family and society as a whole.”
