There are many other organizations which are working in favor of disabled people. These institutes help the disabled people by training them to be able to enjoy riding on vehicles like other normal people.

There was given the right kind of prosthesis to Bert to ensure his strong grip on the left handlebar of the motorcycle. The design was made in such a way that the rider could easily detach the prosthesis on enforcing normal pressure on it.
