Opening a centre with physiotherapy and occupational therapy equipment

As per the report titled “Traumatic Brain Injury”, it is estimated that in India nearly 10 lakh people are injured, 2 lakh die in accidents and nearly 10 lakh require rehabilitation services every year. 

Looking at India's alarming statistics, and acknowledging the critical role of the 'Golden Hour' which is the first hour post-injury in optimal trauma care, SBI Foundation’s healthcare vertical SBIF Jivanam has partnered with Indian Head Injury Foundation (IHIF) to implement “Project Sahyog”, to enhance the Indian medical infrastructure, both in terms of trained personnel and affordable treatments for comprehensive rehabilitation of head injury victims.

Under the project, a charitable physiotherapy and neuro-rehabilitation centre has been set up for providing support to victims of traumatic brain and spine injuries in Delhi NCR. The IHIF Physiotherapy & Neuro Rehabilitation Centre, located at Noida, was inaugurated jointly by Sanjay Prakash, Managing Director, SBI Foundation and Maharaja GajSingh of Marwar-Jodhpur, Chairman, IHIF.

With financial support from SBI Foundation, the centre has been equipped with physiotherapy and occupational therapy equipment and is under the supervision of physiotherapists and occupational therapists with a specialised paediatric unit. The centre caters to the requirements of victims of traumatic brain and spine injuries, persons with disabilities (PwDs), and patients with ortho and other neurological deficits through the provision of post-hospital care and neuro-rehabilitation. Though the centre is open to all, it is primarily set up for the benefit of PwDs from the weaker sections who will be provided with top class rehabilitation free of cost. The project has also introduced an array of cutting-edge rehabilitation machines that are often not available even in the best hospitals.
