The International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO) is a global multidisciplinary organization aiming to improve the quality of life for persons  who may benefit from prosthetic, orthotic, mobility and assistive devices. Since last 40 years, ISPO has more than 3000 members over 90 countries.

 ISPO Pakistan is a National Member Society (NMS) of ISPO International. It was formally established in 2012. ISPO Pakistan has extended its services  throughout Pakistan in all aspects of science and practiced associated with the provision of prosthetic and orthotic care, rehabilitation engineering and  related areas such as wheeled mobility.

 

 In a short period of one year ISPO Pakistan has flourished by leaps and bounds. It has organised many activities i.e International Day of persons with  disabilities, participation in ISPO World Congress 2013 Hyderabad India, Short course on Research Methodology and Hands on SPSS, World cerebral  palsy day solidarity with bomb blast victims and sponsored two students to participate in a short course" Active Citizens Programme "organized by Special Life Foundation (SLF).We have enhanced the members from 28 to 77 who represent all the four provinces of Pakistan.

We managed to accomplish these tasks with cooperation and dedicated team work of our members. To uplift the P&O Profession and its significance in the Multidisciplinary team it is essential to organise short courses, seminars, workshops and conferences at National level. Our dedicated team is working day and night for achieving these targets. 

The upcoming challenges for ISPO Pakistan are formation of Pakistan Prosthetic & Orthotic Council (PPOC) at National Level which will work as regulatory authority to ensure the quality of education and P&O services to be provided in Pakistan as per ISPO/WHO standards and founding of P&O Associations at Provincial Level which not only boost up the profession but also open new horizons for young generations.

In the end I am looking forward for your active participation and assistance in endeavours for the betterment of ISPO Pakistan.
