From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Therdchai Jivacate is a Thai orthopedic surgeon and inventor known for his humanitarian activities in providing free prosthetic limbs to impoverished amputees, and for his development of techniques allowing low-cost, high-quality prostheses to be made from local materials. The activities of the Prostheses Foundation, which he founded in 1991 under royal sponsorship from the Princess Mother Srinagarindra, have expanded beyond the borders of Thailand to Malaysia, Laos, and Burma.

In 2008, he was given the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Public Service.

Dr Jivacate has also designed prosthetic limbs for elephants living in sanctuaries.[1]
