ReLAB Content Development Project

Original Editor - Kim Jackson Top Contributors - Kim Jackson

Description[edit | edit source]

These pages have been developed as a collaboration between Physiopedia and the USAID funded Learning, Acting, and Building for Rehabilitation in Health Systems (ReLAB-HS). ReLAB-HS is made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and is implemented under cooperative agreement number 7200AA20CA00033. The consortium is managed by prime recipient, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

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.
