Biography

Dr.Rajani works in two broad areas i.e. clinical rehabilitation and clinical kinesiology. 

Presently she is focused on further development of the science of Biomechanics in India to meet our requirements in health care which are specific to Indian lifestyle by roping in local and international collaborators to promote education/training (in the process of developing post-graduate program in Biomechanics in collaboration with Cardiff University, UK), research, technology development and application in clinical care. These efforts are expected to culminate in structuring training and research within the field of Biomechanics through formal integration of engineering and health care sciences in India. International Society of Biomechanics has agreed to support promotion of biomechanics education and training in India.

Biography

Educational qualification: I have completed my graduation from L.T.M.M.C (Sion hospital) (2004-2009) which is well- known for its advanced trauma care centre. I have pursued my post graduation in Cardiovascular & Respiratory physiotherapy (2009-2012) from T.N.M.C (Nair hospital), Mumbai. Both these medical colleges are affiliated to MUHS and are well known BMC hospitals across Mumbai which has helped develop my clinical skills.

Experience: I have clinical experience of 2 .5 years and teaching experience of more than a year.

Research Interest: Research interest lies in the field of Pulmonary Rehabilitation.

  • I would like to explore implementation of Respiratory Muscle training in both acute and chronic Respiratory conditions and various other long term debilitating conditions.
  • Would also like to study the importance of chest physiotherapy in weaning trials in chronic mechanically ventilated ICU patients.
  • Would like to develop a Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program which could be practically applied in an Indian set up.

Ongoing research activity: 

  • Analysis of clinically relevant respiratory parameters in Children.
  • Development of a fitness battery which will be applicable to all age groups and relevant to the Indian lifestyle is a primary component of our team’s research activities.
