On Friday, August 23, Bercham-based Sultan Azlan Shah Rehab Centre celebrated Physiotherapy Day 2013 by inviting Dr Alex Khoo Peng Chuan, Pediatric Neurologist and Dr Lee Chon Kit, Medical Officer of Rehabilitation, from Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun, Ipoh to talk on the subjects of epilepsy, orthosis and special seating, respectively.
Dr Alex Khoo provided caregivers and parents with a clearer understanding on epilepsy by showing video shots of a number of patients. Dr Lee Chon Kit gave a slide presentation on the different types of orthoses and special seating available for different kinds of disabilities. The Question-and-Answer session that followed was actively participated by all present.
The audience was entertained to a skit on cerebral palsy by clinical placement students from Allianze University College of Medical Science, Kepala Batas and a slide presentation on the roles and services of physiotherapists by students from Winfield International College, Kuala Lumpur.
Both were very informative, as they reinforced the fact that tender loving care is the only way to alleviate the miseries of both caregivers and sufferers.
