Amputations result from peripheral vascular diseases and cancer, accidents and congenital disorders usually at birth. In case of diseases, amputations are done as a life saving measure while in case of accidents they are a result of road traffic collision or farm or industrial accidents. In case of congenital disorders they are undertaken to facilitate prosthesis. Irrespective of its cause, amputation results not only in physical deformity but also in psychological depression. It thus disrupts an individual’s flow of life. To help overcome such problems, the foundation helps in providing prosthesis to amputees. Its partners Uniglass Industries Pvt Ltd in Bangalore designs and develops state of the art prosthesis for above- knee amputees and Anga Karunya Kendra fits the prosthesis and also addresses needs like posterior physiotherapy and gait training.
