Known for the most well-equipped sports and rehabilitation department, HN Reliance Foundation Hospital (RFH), now houses the most high-tech robot Lokomat – exoskeleton; a major breakthrough for precise physiotherapy.
Combined with manual therapy and other medical assistance, robotic intervention can lead to faster recovery for trauma. This equipment works as an aid to patients recovering from a stroke, paralysis, brain, shoulder, hip, or any kind of injury.
Most patients have a poor walk style, extreme stiffness, and low weight transfer capacity, restricting their locomotor disability. Manual physiotherapy brings back the lost movement awareness of the patient and combining the process with Robotic physiotherapy will improve movement and speed.
Robotic physiotherapy has complimented patients suffering from osteoporosis, brain, injury due to bike accidents, stroke, suffering from paralyzed neck, waist down, shoulder or spine injuries, and more.
Although 50% to 60% of patients can observe more effective results in the first six months of injury which is also known as the golden period for the patient.
Explaining the function of Robotic Physiotherapy, Dr. Poonam Bajaj, Consultant Physiotherapist, Department of Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine Sir H N Reliance Foundation Hospital said, “For decades it has even been revealed that repetitive movements result in improving the patient’s movement and speed. The progression and evaluation of advanced rehabilitation robots in healthcare are bridging the gap in rehab treatments and ensuring training dosages for many patients, especially stroke patients. Lokomat - exoskeleton operates with the most advanced technology globally making in the right choice for our patients.”
Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre is a 345-bed, multi-speciality tertiary care hospital with following thrust areas: Cardiac sciences, gastroenterology & hepatobiliary sciences, liver transplant, nephro-urology, neuro sciences, oncology, orthopaedics & spine, and woman & child health.

This is a technologically-advanced institution designed to international standards and the most stringent criteria in infrastructure, medical care, fire-safety norms, and environmental guidelines.
