Dr Arvind Canchi (Nephrologist) said "People who go through dialysis are mentally stressed, also physically suffer. This is the first time I've been advocating sports-based exercises. We conducted this study with the Throwball Federation and an IT Startup team - BloomValue. Generally, we advise patients to do physiotherapy for these patients. However, Physiotherapy, walking and other exercises are mechanical and monotonous. But Sports-based exercises are not monotonous. These kinds of exercises have a much better effect. It is refreshing both physically and mentally.
"This is the first time a professional outdoor sport has been used for treatment. The ball used in the Throwball is not too hard and bigger in size. It has grips. It also offers a hands-on acupressure experience. The ball is not expensive. It is also easy to play in or out of the house. This will improve the blood circulation throughout the body, just by catching and throwing." explained Assistant Secretary-General, International Throwball Federation - Sampoorna Hegde.
"Throwball is originated in England and Australia. However, it is India that has brought professionalism to the game. Dr T Ramanna, known as "Father of Throwball" has taken an initiative and taken to the international level with 40+ countries affiliation. Men, Women, children and specially-abled can also play this game. We have also organized a wheelchair throwball tournament." said Sampoorna Hegde.
The trial of this therapy is now in the pilot stage. There are still many studies to be done on this. We are planning to publish scientific papers on this." say Sampoorna.
