INDIA – Amrita Hospitals, an Indian-based chain of world-class healthcare facilities, has officially opened the doors of its new Human Motor Control Centre stationed in its hospital in Faridabad.

Amrita Hospital, Faridabad now houses India’s first-ever Human Motor Control Centre dedicated to serving patients with neurological disorders.

It is specifically designed to cater to individualized treatment for people with neurological conditions, including parkinsonism, hyperkinetic movements, epilepsy, and functional neurological disorders.

The Human Motor Control Centre will blend compassionate patient-centric care with exceptional medical expertise and cutting-edge technology to revolutionize the treatment of neurological conditions.

In an official statement, Amrita Hospital, Faridabad said: “By seamlessly integrating a range of advanced neuro-physiological procedures, the Human Motor Control Centre aims to provide exceptional care and treatment to people suffering from movement disorders.”

Experts who will be part of this exciting new centre will harness the power of advanced technologies to collect electroencephalography (EEG), Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS and electromyography (EMG) data, and ultimately, better patient outcomes.

Commenting on this knowledge sharing, Dr. Sanjay Pandey, Professor & Head of the Department of Neurology at Amrita Hospital, Faridabad, said: “In India, there is a lack of extensive research on human motor control disorders despite the presence of millions of patients.”

Clinicians and researchers will leverage health data analytics to deepen their understanding of the physiology of human voluntary movement, how bodies move, and human motor control disorders.

The Human Motor Control Centre will also encourage, support, and facilitate the knowledge transfer of patient-generated health data with renowned institutions to generate novel data.

Our unique approach involves utilizing functional MRI data and collaborating with researchers worldwide to advance our understanding of human neuro-physiology,” outlined Dr. Sanjay Pandey.

The launch of India’s first Human Motor Control Centre at Amrita Hospital, Faridabad seeks to tackle the increase in the number of people with human motor disorders over the past years in India.

On his part, Dr. Sanjeev K. Singh, Medical Director of Amrita Hospital, Faridabad said: “The centre’s opening marks a breakthrough in our mission to provide comprehensive care and support to individuals with neurological disorders.”

Through in-depth analysis using neuro-physiological procedures, experts in the field of neurology are expected to bring new approaches to treating neurological conditions.

Through cutting-edge technology and collaboration with leading researchers, we aim to unravel the mysteries of human motor control and revolutionize the way we diagnose and treat neurological conditions,” stated Dr. Sanjeev K. Singh.

It is a clear reflection of the hospital’s commitment to delivering top-notch healthcare that positively impacts the lives of countless patients and their loved ones.

The first-of-its-kind specialized centre in India was inaugurated by Dr. Mark Hallett, Chief of the Human Motor Control Section at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), which is a part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The inauguration ceremony comes after Amrita Hospital, Faridabad took a major step forward with the launch of its specialized clinic for asthma care, treatment, and support earlier this year.

The Department of Pulmonary Medicine at Amrita Hospital in Faridabad opened an ultra-modern Asthma Clinic that will cater to asthma patients of all severity levels.

In similar news, Amrita Hospital, Kochi has expanded its research capabilities with the addition of two new well-equipped research centers at the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri Campus in Kollam.

The new research facilities are expected to accelerate the progress of the hospital’s existing research programs focused on genomics, nanotechnology, informatics, and cell biology.
