New facility to produce prosthetics established at 'Ranaviru Sevana'

[October 11 2018]

A new workshop to produce Prostheses and Orthotics was opened at the 'Ranaviru Sevana', in Ragama, on Wednesday (10 October). Production at this new facility, established at the wellness centre for disabled War Heroes of the Army commenced on the Army Day, yesterday. The Sri Lanka Army's 69th anniversary fell on 10th October.

According to Army media, the modern facility has been established with brand new machinery and equipment worth about Rs. 80 million and the construction of the workshop had cost about Rs 80 million. The workshop is manned with about 25 foreign trained Army technicians. The new facility will also enable amputees to get their old artificial devices repaired without seeking new ones. Disable War Heroes would also be immensely benefitted by this project as they can learn the correct use of artificial limbs during their stay at the wellness centre.

Presently 115 disable War Heroes are undergoing rehabilitation and recuperation at the 'Ranaviru Sevana'.

The opening ceremony of the new workshop was graced by the Commander of the Army, Lieutenant General Mahesh Senanayake.
