  In 1994 Mobility India began work in a small rented room in Bangalore. Within five years their work had grown, staff numbers had trebled and a dream project was born. The project was Mobility India’s own rehabilitation, research and training centre to focus and expand the various strands of work.

Chapal Khasnabis, MI’s Director for 10 years and his team turned this vision into reality in 1999 when MIRRTC’s foundation stone was laid: two years later, with support from DDP and many others the new centre, much larger than originally planned was inaugurated.

MIRRTC is much more than just MI’s office. It is a centre for training in prosthetics, orthotics, rehabilitation and community based therapy and for direct rehabilitation services to the public. The centre comprises of classrooms, library, student dormitories, canteen, workshop and R & D space, treatment rooms, store and a multi-purpose hall for meetings and conferences. 

The Jaipur Foot Production Unit is unique feature of a unique building and is housed in one of the large rooms. The centre has boosted MI’s work in other areas especially in research and development of new technology such as PFKAFO and to hold meetings such as the recent wheelchair technology workshop.

MIRRTC, its personnel and facilities, is the focus for all MI programmes - many of which are also DDP partnerships.

The training programmes for prosthetics, orthotics and rehabilitation therapy have attracted trainees from many countries including those of DDP’s partners. The centre has an international feel with trainees from as far apart as Angola and Albania and from the various states within of India.

MIRRTC is also very much a local resource providing high quality direct rehabilitation services for people in Bangalore especially from nearby slums areas where MI and DDP worked on CBR and inclusive education programmes.   

MIRRTC was designed for disabled people’s comfort and safety and therefore accessible to all, probably one of the most accessible buildings in India.
