Sir John Wilson Prosthetic & Orthotic Centre

Sir John Wilson Prosthetic & Orthotic Centre (SJWPOC) was established in July 2007 in memory of Sir John Wilson who founded the IMPACT movement in 1983 for the prevention of disability. Since its inception, SJWPOC has been producing prosthetic and orthotic devices for poor and needy patients at an affordable (subsidized) cost. The centre’s aim is to rehabilitate orthopedic patients before and after surgery. It produces a wide range of appliances for the upper and lower extremities and spinal support. The centre is going to be operated in partnership with Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre for Disabled Children (HRDC) at Itahari of province no.1.
