IAMD set up “Manav Mandir” (50 bedded) at Solan for Muscular Dystrophy patients
SHIMLA : Indian Association of Muscular Dystrophy (IAMD), with its headquarter at Solan, Himachal Pradesh, is working since 1992 to provide relief and rehabilitation to the people afflicted with Muscular Dystrophy (MD) in India and also to create public awareness. It is operational mainly by persons living with Muscular Dystrophy. The organization is working for all types of disabilities in the State of Himachal Pradesh.
Muscular Dystrophy is a progressive neuro-muscular genetic disorder, where muscles gradually lose their strength, leaving the person totally crippled and dependent even for their basic needs. There is no known cure so far. Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy can slow down and prolong the life.
IAMD has established a 50 bedded Integrated Muscular Dystrophy Rehabilitation Center (IMDRC) “Manav Mandir” in Solan (H.P), for the rehabilitation and management training for the patients of Muscular Dystrophy and their families.The outdoor and indoor services, at this center, started in January 2017.
The organization has established Integrated Muscular Dystrophy Rehabilitation Centre (IMDRC) “Manav Mandir” at Solan (H.P) for the management of Muscular Dystrophy. The centre is providing patient-specific Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Medical and Genetic Counselling, complete care management, help in test and diagnosis, rehabilitation, orientation, rejuvenation, diet management, and all other alternative therapies for people living with Muscular Dystrophy. The indoor as well as outdoor services are being provided to the people living with Muscular Dystrophy coming from all over India. I would also like to inform you that IAMD is organising 3 weekly camps at IMDRC-“Manav Mandir” Kothon, Solan (H.P) for Muscular Dystrophy (MD) patients in one month. The number of Muscular Dystrophy (MD) patients who are visiting the centre is increasing day by day due to fall in the number of COVID-19 cases in the Country. Presently the number of patients in one camp remains around thirty. But in the present camp which started from 24.05.2022 the number of patients increased up to 37 patients who visited this centre along with 80 attendants.
IAMD is also organizing national coaching camp of Boccia game in collaboration with National Paraboccia Federation for muscular dystrophy affected as well as players having Spinal Injury from 24-05-2022 to 30-05-2022 at Integrated Muscular Dystrophy Center, Solan. As wheel chair bound people can play only Boccia game so IAMD offers opportunity to people with muscular dystrophy to play Boccia game at its center which is the only center having indoor courts of international standards in India.
