Introduction

In 2018 Physiopedia, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) collaborated to develop and deliver a online programme of courses covering the topic of Wheelchair Service Provision.

The wheelchair is one of the most commonly used assistive devices for enhancing personal mobility, which is a precondition for enjoying human rights and living in dignity. For many people, an appropriate, well-designed and well-fitted wheelchair can be the first step towards integration, participation and inclusion in society. A wheelchair is much more than just an assistive device for many people with impairments; it is the means by which they can exercise their human rights and achieve inclusion and equal participation. A wheelchair provides mobility, ensures better health and quality of life, and assists people with an impairment to live full and active lives in their communities.

Aims

This programme of courses aims to provide a comprehensive theoretical understanding of Wheelchair Mobility and to develop an understanding of the theoretical principles, skills and knowledge underlying the management skills and knowledge in the management of wheelchair service delivery.

  1. Introduction to Wheelchair Service Provision
