Here’s what you can expect …
As its flagship meeting, the ISPO World Congress is a unique interactive forum where the global community of professionals involved in the care of persons in need of prosthetic, orthotic, mobility and assistive devices comes together to learn about the latest scientific and clinical advances, products, innovative technologies, designs and materials in P&O care.
Participants include orthotists, prosthetists, orthopaedic surgeons, physio and occupational therapists, rehabilitation engineers, caregivers, clinical psychologists, social institutions and many others, all of whom have the unique opportunity for professional development through discussion and exchange amongst teachers, clinicians, researchers, technicians and manufacturers.
The broad interdisciplinary programme features symposia, instructional courses, manufacturers’ workshops and poster sessions, whilst the extensive tradeshow, organised in tandem with the congress, provides a platform for equipment manufacturers from across the globe to showcase their products as well as to exchange, network and get closer to their customers. Educational institutions, systems and service providers, rehabilitation Centres and financial institutions. also get an opportunity to promote their activities to an international audience while learning, sharing, initiating new projects and building partnerships.
