Using CBR Workers to Follow Up (Field) P&O Services

Abstract: Training of Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) staff is a strong requirement when looking at the competencies needed to follow up with home beneficiaries of Prosthetics and Orthotics (P&O) devices so that they can eventually integrate themselves into the community. The International Society of Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO) is actively collecting information on good practices to ensure that these trainings are easier to access and to disseminate on a broader scale in developing countries.

Multicountry Study on Follow Up System of Prosthetics and Orthotics Services in Developing Countries

Abstract: Providing quality standard prosthetics and orthotics service in a developing country is a challenge in itself with the huge amount of victims after war or civil unrest resulting from war ordnance (amputations), breakdown of vaccination programs (polio) and lack of midwifes (cerebral palsy).
