The Prosthetic and Orthotic Workshop at Mylaudy became operational in 2004. With advanced facilities for fitting, crafting, modifying, fabricating, and delivering prefabricated and custom prosthetic limbs and orthotic appliances it has reached over 3,000 satisfied clients. Since April 2016, under the management of Pro-Vision P&O Workshop has further intensified its activities with defined objectives in mind.
OBJECTIVES OF THE UNIT
The need for artificial limbs and orthotic devices is on the increase due to increase in disabilities, disease related amputations and accidents. Maximising the quality of life calls for careful application in accordance with the potentials and limitations of each person and environmental conditions. Hence we aim at Providing most appropriate and affordable prosthesis and orthosis to persons with disabilities and neuromuscular disorders.

Pro-Vision organises training programmes to the staff of NGOs and other service providers on the relevance of prosthesis and orthosis so as to enable more deserving ones to access the services. It also collaborates and motivates civil society organisations, religious institutions and philanthropists to support the really deserving poor ones to avail the aids and appliances required to them.
The satisfaction shared by the patients in words and facial expressions gives us the confidence that our services are tailored to the needs of the rural and poor people and this gives us the confidence we could further expand our services to reach out more deserving people in the coming years.
