The centre is furnished with essential modern machineries and Equipment required for the purpose of manufacturing artificial limbs and appliances. This workshop has the capacity of providing free artificial limbs to the disabled and has the facility of free lodging and boarding in case of night-stay for 30 Handicapped at a time, if required.

A functional below-knee prosthesis looks like a normal limb, allowing for the range of movement required for normal human locomotion. The total contact socket provides better sensory feedback to the wearer.
The above-knee prosthesis is also indigenously designed and fabricated from high-quality, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes. The sockets used are of both ischial bearing and ischial containment types.
Calipers are devices that enable people with motor disabilities — like Cerebral Palsy, C.T.E.V including polio-afflicted patients — to walk and thereby remain mobile. While polio has been eradicated from India and as such there are no new polio cases detected, patients with polio continue to throng KKM to get calipers fitted.
Patients who have lost mobility of their lower limbs due to polio or other reasons have to crawl or be carried around. Hand-pedalled tricycles, with the Indian Standard Institute mark, provided by Kalyanam Karoti free of cost enable them to move around independently and with dignity.
Wheelchair given by Kalyanam karoti is mostly for paraplegic patients, bilateral amputees and bilateral polio patients. The wheelchairs are also being fabricated & supplied to patients particularly those suffering from paraplegia.
Kalyanam Karoti provides crutches to needy people with disabilities. The crutches have ISI certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards of Government of India.
Hearing aids are also being provided to patients suffering mainly from profound hearing loss.
Kalyanam Karoti provides artificial limbs/calipers, physical aids and appliances, and assistance completely “free of cost” because most of its patients live below the poverty line; to ask them to pay would be inhumane and unethical. Rich patients generally give donations.
While the assistance is given free, Kalyanam Karoti emphasizes that the services are not charity but help to brothers and sisters, so that the self-respect of patients is preserved.
Kalyanam Karoti holds outreach programs and rehabilitation camps to reach out to handicapped people living in remote areas. Besides this, any disabled from any part of India or elsewhere can access the services of Kalyanam Karoti.
Kalyanam Karoti assistance is offered without discrimination on the grounds of gender, caste, creed, religion or geography.
Patients are treated humanely and with respect; personal attention is paid to them.
Patients are empowered by providing them with limbs, assistance, etc., which give them mobility and also restores their economic capabilities.
Kalyanam Karoti arranges camps within the state as well as outside the state. Through these camps, the registration of the disabled of that area is done and the equipment is selected according to their types of disability. There are many districts like Aligarh, Hathras, Etah, Agra, Mathura, Jhansi, Lalitpur etc where camps are organized regularly. Camps are also organized in other states like Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab, MP, Himachal Pradesh, Uttaranchal, West Bengal etc.
