Therapy on Wheels is a mobile therapy clinic with a setup that will provide a variety of therapies such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy to differently-abled children in remote areas. The bus is designed in such a way that it will have all the medical equipment such as a treadmill, therapy wall, toys, wheelchairs, wide floors, ceilings and other accessories. Therapy bus will also play an active role in spreading awareness among the people and will give information about the importance of providing therapy especially to the differently abled children. Along with the therapy, the therapy bus will also make people aware of disability. To do this, an in-built projector will be used that will help educate local residents on the early identification of disabilities and the importance of handicap interventions.This is especially important in this time of Kovid-19 because children cannot come to the center for therapy.
