Project Synopsis

NNMF is engaged in the treatment and rehabilitation of children with disabilities. NNMF is running a comprehensive therapy centre which caters to multiple therapy needs of children with disabilities, like Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy and Speech therapy. They provide free of cost therapy services to poor children with disabilities who cannot afford therapy costs. Treatment of children with disabilities by surgical intervention is the flagship program of the foundation. These children who have benefited from corrective surgery get post-operative therapy sessions at their comprehensive therapy centre. Many children with Orthopaedic abnormalities, Cerebral palsy, Autism, Muscular dystrophy, Down syndrome etc. are getting therapy services on daily basis at the centre without incurring any cost to the parents. In order to provide effective therapy services to children with disabilities, they are in pressing need of some sophisticated therapy equipments.

Project Objective

  • To use new technologies for treatment of children with disabilities


Role of Therapy in Management of Disability

  • Early intervention Therapy Program: Most of the disabilities if diagnosed early can be treated effectively through early intervention therapy programs. There are lots of skills that develop in the first three years of a child’s life. Early intervention therapy program includes children between the age group of 3 months to three years. Some infants and toddlers meet developmental milestones more slowly than expected. This is called a developmental delay. Significance of early intervention therapy programs is to use the very crucial developmental period of the new born neuromuscular system. It will help in reducing the problems of functional disabilities that may develop during growing years of the child. Early intervention therapy program is mainly beneficial in conditions like Cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, Autism, Down’s syndrome and other Developmental Disorder.
  • Regular therapy program: Most of the children diagnosed with developmental disorders need regular therapy throughout their developmental years. Lack of therapy in initial years may lead to development of severe deformities and functional impairment. These children with severe disabilities are unable to perform day to day activities and have to be carried by their parents everywhere and eventually they become burden on family as well as society. Regular therapy program can improve strength, can prevent development of severe deformities and enhance functional capabilities of child. Most of these children can become independent due to regular therapy program
  • Post surgery Therapy Program: Post surgery intensive therapy is very much essential to prevent recurrence of the deformity. Properly planned therapy program can ensure the expected outcome of surgical intervention. Post surgery therapy is must in all the children who have undergone surgery. Depending on the severity of the child’s condition, goals are set. Post surgery therapy includes strength training, correction of deformities and functional strengthening.

Project rationale:

Foundation is running comprehensive therapy centre for treatment of children with disabilities. Children benefiting from our therapy centre have various kinds of disabilities. Each child have different therapy requirement and need different equipments for their treatment. They have commonly required therapy equipments at the centre but new sophisticated equipments are needed for more effective therapy. Availability of new equipments will ensure that every child is getting treated by different kinds of therapy techniques.


Number of children availing facilities at their therapy centre is consistently increasing. Lack of some equipment is creating waiting time for getting therapy on that equipment. If required equipments are made available then children won’t have to wait during therapy sessions and all will get timely therapy services.


Salient Features

  1. Wide range of therapy equipment will be available to children with disabilities
  2. Sophisticated equipment for therapy will be available to children with disabilities
  3. New technologies will be applied for treatment of children with disabilities
