NALCO’s support for rehabilitation of Divyangas

Bhubaneswar:30/9/18:“With the upsurge of technological innovations and various skill development programmes, there is host of opportunities for the Divyangjans to enhance their skills and nurture their talents, thereby becoming more competent and self-sufficient in life. NALCO, as a responsible corporate citizen,takes pride in joining hands with the reputed National level Organisation,” said Dr. Tapan Kumar Chand during the inauguration of the CAD/Cam Laboratory and laying of the foundation stone for Vocational Training Centre at Swami Vivekanand National Institute of Rehabilitation Training & Research (SVNIRTAR) at Olatpur today. It may be mentioned that the 7-Axis Robotics machine with in-built CAD/CAM Software for manufacturing of sockets at SVNIRTAR is first of its kind in the Country and has been installed by NALCO Foundation, the CSR arm of the company. This Rs.2.73 crore project would enable SVNIRTAR in producing the orthoses and prosthetic sockets in a more efficient manner within less time, avoiding any adverse result on the nerve system of the users.
