Healthcare startup, SuVitas, has announced the launch of its Virtual Rehab Services.
The startup is India’s first transition care chain, which currently runs two state-of-the-art facilities in Hyderabad and Bengaluru.
In a press release, the company said, “With the current situation of the nationwide lockdown in the wake of COVID-19 and limited possibilities of patients availing outpatient services due to restricted movement, the launch of its Virtual Rehab Services has been accelerated to address various needs for physical medical rehabilitation interventions.”
Antra Bhargava, CEO, SuVitas said, “Healthcare services in India need to adapt to a changing and uncertain world dynamic where social distancing will continue to be the norm for the foreseeable future.”
As per him, the company’s tech-enabled services address the current circumstances where people are suffering from various conditions and cannot access their regular hospital services.
“The fully trained team of experienced professionals at SuVitas will now be available to provide personalised attention to help relieve the care burden of a family having a vulnerable patient, from the comfort of their homes,” he added.
Dr. Vijay Janagama, Director – New Initiatives, SuVitas, opined, “We have been working on providing our services virtually for the last six months… We feel these services will effectively bridge the gap of transition care that is required for patients to go back to their normal selves and lead a healthy lifestyle.”
The medical conditions that can be addressed through these services include pain management and ergonomic consultations, psychological counselling, prehab or post-surgical rehab, elderly care and fitness and treatment for the special kids, among others.
The Virtual Rehab Services can be availed either through one-on-one consultations or by way of group therapy or webinars.
The company in the release said, “Private consultations can be availed for any of the services individually or a combination thereof based on individual needs and assessment. Group therapy or webinars can be conducted for various common use cases such as ergonomics for employees at home, back pain, et al.”
