The Sport of Life initiative aims to promote awareness about sports injuries and provide treatment for sportspeople
Bengaluru-based Healthium Medtech has inaugurated the ‘Sport of Life’ initiative, with Abhinav Bindra Foundation Trust (ABFT).
ABFT aims to support injured players in need with the cost of medical treatment, doctors, surgeries and rehabilitation facilities to recover from sports injuries and carry on with their careers.
Healthium will provide its arthroscopy implants required for the surgeries free of cost.
According to an Injury Surveillance Report by NCA last year, 14.75 % of players sustained shoulder injuries, 13.11% of players sustained knee injuries and almost 74 % players suffer from career-threatening Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries in the 1st two years of return to sport.
Healthium has created over 300 SKUs for knee and shoulder procedures, designed and developed in-house, backed by 50+ patents applied and granted in U.S and India. This “Make in India, for the world” portfolio offers a wide range of implants and equipment to treat soft tissue conditions in the shoulders and knees such as anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, posterior cruciate ligament injuries, other ligament repair & reconstruction and meniscal repair, so that despite injuries the ‘Sport of Life’ does not stop.
