Infrastructure

Paediatric clinic

This clinic provides opportunities to work with children who have special needs. The clinic also conducts sports day and cultural programs for disabled kids, bringing a smile to their faces. On an average, at least 100 children find treatment at this clinic every month for handicaps ranging through Cerebral Palsy, ADHD, Autism, Down's syndrome, learning disabilities, mental retardation, congenital anomalies, developmental disabilities and seizure disorders. Students are involved during ward rounds, case conferences, parental counseling and guidance, group therapy for children, and self-appraisal groups for parents.

Orthopaedics and neurology clinic

This unit equips you with the use of assistive technology, home modification techniques and other adjuncts to OT practice. Standardized assessment tools are used to review functional abilities, activities of daily living, hand function and higher cortical function. This is normally a concern for people living with lower back pain, fractures, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, periarthritis and neurological problems like stroke, head injury, as well as general medical problems like diabetes and obesity.

Community based rehabilitation clinic

The community based rehabilitation clinic conducts awareness and rehabilitation camps. This clinic brings students close to the community and improves their ability to communicate. Once the disability is identified, patients and their caregivers are given psychological support. They are also given simple exercise devices that let them adapt to their disability.

Prosthetic and orthotic clinic

This unit has all the facilities for the fabrication of artificial limbs, calipers, splints and braces according to a patient's needs. These are then given to the physically challenged at a nominal charge or free of cost.
