Did you know that in India, about 40,000 people/year lose the functionality of their upper limbs? Unfortunately, around 85% of them continue to live without any solution or aid. they belong to middle and lower-middle-income families, which cannot afford any hi-tech assistive devices.
Although several developments have come about in the healthcare industry in the last few years, the cost of assistive solutions continues to be a major concern for most people. Prosthetics can cost anywhere between Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 15,00,000, which often results in years of debt for the family.
Unfortunately, even the job market is not in their favor either. Most high-paying jobs require candidates to be well-equipped with digital smart devices such as Personal Computers and Mobile Phones.
So even if the candidate has the right qualifications, their inability or struggles to use digital devices stop them from getting employed by their dream company.
But is it fair for someone to be deprived of equal opportunities due to their disability?
No, of course not!
Hi, I am Pravin Kumar and I am the founder of Dextroware Devices.
When I came across this scenario, I knew that there was something that I had to do for the community of upper limb disabled individuals and their caregivers.
Having completed my Bachelor’s in Electronics and Communication Engineering, I decided to use my learnings and expertise to help those in need. I had already worked on a few projects that helped me gain the knowledge that was required. Using my skills and after various trials and errors, I came up with a possible solution that could help people with challenges overcome the only obstacle standing in their way of getting a job.
