A delegation of 54 professionals and management students from America today visited a Jaipur Foot manufacturing centre to witness the processing of the famed 'inexpensive' prosthetic leg.
Students from Carlson School of Management of University of Minnesota and professionals from various companies in America visited Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti here to see the manufacturing and marketing process of Jaipur Foot.
Addressing the delegation, the Samiti's founder D R Mehta said the Jaipur Foot was a boon to those who cannot afford the expensive composite carbon fibre variants.
