Assistive Technology Content Development Project[edit | edit source]

This project aims to develop content related to assistive technology and rehabilitation. We intend to populate the site with practical, credible and thought-provoking information and knowledge that physiotherapists should have to effectively provide rehabilitation within these complex contexts. Much of this content development has been guided by ATscale, the Global Partnership for Assistive Technology launched in 2018 with the ambitious goal of catalysing action to reach 500 million more people with life-changing assistive technology (AT) by 2030 and the Priority Assistive Products List which includes hearing aids, wheelchairs, communication aids, spectacles, artificial limbs, pill organisers, memory aids and other technology that help older people and people with disabilities live a health and productive life.

Understanding Rehabilitation as a Health Strategy Course[edit | edit source]

The aim of this project was to develop a comprehensive knowledge of rehabilitation as an essential health service within the current global context so you can play an effective and proactive role in global and local efforts to increase access to high quality rehabilitation care and improve the functioning of individuals worldwide.
