voice 1: Then one day, Ram was riding to the hospital on his two-wheel bicycle. He rode over something sharp in the road. It made a hole in the tire. All the air escaped. While he was having the tire fixed, an idea came to him. The tires were made from rubber. They were light and strong. And they lasted a long time. Rubber could be the perfect material for the prosthetic feet that he was trying to create!
声音1:后来有一天,拉姆骑自行车前往医院。他在骑行时压到了马路上一个尖的东西。这使他的自行车轮胎破了个洞。轮胎漏气了。他在补胎时突然想到了一个主意。轮胎是用橡胶做的。橡胶很轻,同时又很坚固。还可以使用很长时间。对正在试图制造假脚的拉姆来说,橡胶是最适合的材料!

voice 2: Ram Chandra and Dr Sethi started to work with this new idea. The result was the 'Jaipur Foot'. The basic foot and the toes are made from separate blocks of rubber. The ankle is made of wood. The pieces of the foot are held together by rubber with material in it, like the material that makes tires strong. Finally the whole foot and ankle has a rubber cover that is made to look just like human skin.
声音2:拉姆·钱德拉和塞提医生开始用这个新想法展开工作。结果他们创造了“斋浦尔足”。足部和脚趾用不同的橡胶块制作。脚踝用木头制成。足部的不同部分用制成橡胶的材料结合在一起,就是那种使轮胎变得坚固的材料。最后在整个足部和脚踝上覆上橡胶保护层,使它看上去像人类皮肤。

voice 1: The Jaipur Foot is now used in many countries of the world. It is popular because the materials used to build it are not hard to find. Many people have learned how to build these prosthetic feet. Most important of all, they only cost a small amount of money — less than thirty US dollars! Before the first Jaipur Foot was made, a common prosthetic foot cost thousands of dollars. Very few people had enough money to buy one. But today thousands of people have a Jaipur Foot.
声音1:“斋浦尔足”现在应用于全世界许多国家。它非常受欢迎,因为制造原料很容易找到。许多人学会了如何制造假脚。最重要的是,这些假脚的价格很便宜,还不到30美元!在第一只“斋浦尔足”被制造出来以前,常见的假脚要花费数千美元。很少有人能买得起。但是现在,有数千人拥有了“斋浦尔足”。
