It gives us immense pleasure to announce that program of physiotherapy at AdtU has come up with new ventures that are Gait Lab, Electromyography studies lab, and Pulmonary Function test lab with Spirometer to be able to cater to the need of the new education prospect of Physiotherapy.
For the very first time in Assam all these three technological medical assets, which play a vital role in diagnosis and treatment are coming up in the same University, keeping in mind the present scenario and need of the hour.

Electromyography studies is also an important diagnostic test to rule out any musculoskeletal issues, by studying a group of muscles to recognize the underlying pathology
Pulmonary function tests are non-invasive tests, used to make us understand how the lung works, and its condition to evaluate the different lung volumes and capacities.
