The Jaipur Foot is a low cost prosthetic leg with lifelike performance. It uses many of the advanced joint designs found in other prosthetic limbs. It retails for $80, in contrast to American-made prosthetics which can cost more than $10,000. It is easy to adjust, waterproof and can be used either with or without shoes, important for cultural reasons such as entering temples. The limb can be adjusted in the field, meaning only one trip is needed to measure the user and provide the prosthetic.
The Jaipur foot is manufactured in Jaipur, India by Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS), a nonprofit organization.
