➔ Hand-pedaled tricycles
Persons who have lost both their feet or have lost mobility of their lower limbs due to polio or other reasons have to crawl or be carried around. With the Indian
Standard Institute mark, hand-pedaled tricycles provided by BMVSS free of charge enable them to move around independently and with dignity.
A special wheelchair-cum-pedaled tricycle developed by MIT USA with BMVSS as a partner is particularly useful for off-road undulated terrains, mostly for paraplegic
patients, bilateral amputees, and bilateral polio patients. Field trials have shown positive results of this aid. Wheelchairs with the World Health Organisation’s
design are also fabricated & supplied to patients, particularly those suffering from paraplegia.
BMVSS provides crutches to needy people with disabilities. The crutches have ISI certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards of the Government of India.
➔ Hearing aids
On a small scale, hearing aids are also being provided to patients suffering mainly from profound hearing loss.
➔ Other orthopedic aids and appliances
Other assistive aids are tailor-made based on the needs of patients.
