Assam Downtown University Launches New Ventures to Meet the Growing Demand for physiotherapy Education.
Importance of Physiotherapy in Health Care Industry
The physiotherapy profession plays an important role in the health care industry and has long been a part of the medical community. Assam Downtown University strives to produce the highest quality health care professionals possible.
It gives us great pleasure to announce that the physiotherapy program at AdtU has established new ventures such as the Gait Lab, Electromyography studies lab, and Pulmonary Function test lab with Spirometer to meet the needs of the new education prospect of Physiotherapy.
For the first time in Assam, all three technological medical assets, which play critical roles in diagnosis and treatment, will be housed in the same university, taking into account the current situation.
Gait labs or motion analyzers study biomechanics and aid in the assessment, diagnosis, and proper treatment plan by studying various gait parameters, distinguishing between normal and abnormal gait, and assisting in critical analysis of gait abnormalities.
Electromyography studies are also useful in ruling out any musculoskeletal issues by studying groups of muscles to identify the underlying pathology.
Pulmonary function tests are non-invasive tests that are used to determine how the lung works and its condition in order to assess different lung volumes and capacities.
A spirometer is another important tool for assessing lung quality and function, as well as for respiratory muscle training. Following a pandemic, the entire society is in desperate need of new approaches to rapid analysis and treatment.
