Celebrating World Physiotherapy Day


Preparing to transform healthcare

To celebrate and honor the contribution of physiotherapists in the healthcare industry, The Department of Allied Health Sciences, Brainware University on September 8, 2021 at 4 PM. In an attempt to make students aware of the endless opportunities in the job market, we invited renowned physiotherapist, Dr. Aijaz Ashai, a global leader in the healthcare industry.

Dr. Ashai introduced students to various key areas in the field and how physiotherapy was fast becoming a great field for entrepreneurship as well. “As people are working out and being more health-conscious, licensed physiotherapists are in high demand. We have health spas all over the country,” he said.

Dr. Ashai also informed students about the use of bioinformatics in the field and how robotic implements are transforming the industry. “With the use of robotics, we can provide our patients better outcomes as they heal from injuries, diagnose their problems faster, and overall increase the quality of treatment,” he advised.

Inspired by the work of field leaders, the students presented posters on various topics such as ‘rehabilitation and role of physiotherapy in Covid-19’, ‘Robotics and physiotherapy’, and many others.

The final part of the session was an interactive one where students got a chance to ask their career-related doubts. Dr. Ashai left the students motivated and prepared for the future as they train themselves to join the global community of physiotherapists.
