Contributing to Society :
We are committed to causes that improve the condition of the societies in which we live and do business as well as those less privileged.
We are actively associated with promotion of BMVSS-Jaipur Foot- World’s largest organization for disabled which has been recognized by Time magazine for the year 2009 as one of the world’s 50 best inventions. The organization also enjoys a special consultative status under the United Nations Economic & Social Council (UN ECOSOC). It has also been a subject matter for a case study by Harvard Business School, USA in 2013.
Jaipur foot (BMVSS) has a clear social vision and commitment to help the disabled regain mobility and dignity by fitting high-quality, durable artificial limbs and other aids and appliances. It has provided limbs in over 30 countries to approximately 1.4 million beneficiaries till date — all free of charge. It has an open-door policy that welcomes anyone with a disability, without any discrimination — cutting across geographical, social, religious and gender bias. It also helps in their economic rehabilitation.
It has introduced the self-lubricating Stanford-Jaipur Knee with a revolutionary new technology, developed jointly by BMVSS in collaboration with Stanford University.
BMVSS operates Jaipur foot and is sustained with the support of generous grants and donations.
