Hi Bhavna. My brother is suffering from arthritis. Does this come under locomotor disability?

June 12, 2019

Hi. Arthritis is recognised as one of the leading causes of locomotor disability under the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act 2016. Your brother must undergo tests to evaluate the extent of Locomotor Disability. The test will determine the extent of functional limitations and impairments and based on his ability to perform movement-related activities, doctors can understand the severity of disability. Depending on the type of treatment, rehabilitation and therapy will be recommended.
