ISPO 50th Anniversary - Let's Celebrate

This weekend it is 50 years since the ISPO was formed. The first charter was signed by 7- year old Ulla Anderson, a patient of Knud Jensen the Founder and 1st President. This clearly showed that the society has always considered the patient at the centre of its work. It was Professor George Murdoch, the 2nd President who is generally credited for introducing a multi-disciplinary approach to P&O rehabilitation and associated services, and the 3rd President, Anthony Staros, an engineer from USA famously said…….I didn't "get into" the assistive technology field; it grew up around me and I hung on to grow with it. This suggests the essence of ISPO – to respond to needs and develop P&O and AT services and expertise accordingly.

The ISPO has drafted a new Charter that represents current practice. It can be seen on the ISPO International website and I would invite all if you to sign it electronically after which you will be able to download a copy for your office. The names of all those who have already signed is shown on the website.

Test Standards for Direct Skeletal Fixation Failsafe Devices: Report on Workshop Aug 2020

A report on the recent Workshop on Test Standards for DSF Failsafe Devices is now available for download here.

The workshop, co-convened by Professor Peter Lee, Director, ARC CMIT, and Professor Sir Saeed Zahedi, Technical Director at Blatchford, arose as a consequence of discussions at the 2019 ISPO UK Annual Scientific Meeting where it was recognised that there is ambiguity between the testing of the implant failsafe mechanism and the structural testing of prosthetics.
