Visit to Kinderspital Pediatric hospital and rehabilitation centre, Zurich, Switzerland
The team of experts headed by Dr Franziska Spreitler (head of Therapies) included an expert in Robotics, a Paediatrician and 2 Physiotherapists.
There was an elaborate explanation of the various therapeutic ideas implemented at the set up with interaction done by the experts and the students participated actively in the interaction. There was also an explanation of the documentation of research activities and classification of the equipment in terms of their role in impacting the various domains of International classification of Function (ICF), a system that can be implemented in the Indian setup.
The conducted tour was highly informative and inspiring and will be beneficial in terms of bringing new dimensions into the rehabilitation set-up in D. Y. Patil Hospital and Research Centre.
