Thanks CR Equipements for allowing us to make the Amputee Rehabilitation course free!

We are delighted to announce that CR Equipements have sponsored the Lower Limb Amputee Rehabilitation course in 2015.  This generous donation and support has allowed us to make the course completely free to all participants.

CR Equipements have been manufacturing cost effective orthopaedic components since 1987.  They employ 150 people in five manufacturing sites around the world and exports to over 60 countries worldwide.  While affordable, the products of CR facilities enable ortho-prosthetists to provide assistive devices adapted and of good quality to their patients. The price of prostheses and orthoses is a major barrier for people with disabilities to access these devices, the use of an appropriate technology helps to overcome this obstacle.  An appropriate technology can be described as “A system providing proper fit and alignment based on sound biomechanical principles that suit the needs of the individual and can be sustained by the country at the most economical and affordable price.”  This appropriate technology is polypropylene technology.

CR Equipements’ prosthetic components are based on the polypropylene technology developed by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).  The polypropylene technology is an appropriate response to enable access to mobility. According to WHO at least 0.5% of the world population is in need of orthotic and prosthetic devices in less resourced settings and these needs are often not met. Up to today, hundreds of thousands of people with disability still do not have access to these devices; the polypropylene (PP) technology is an appropriate answer.

CR Equipements’ products are the result of a long experience acquired in the field by the ICRC specialists and an effective collaboration with CR Equipements’ engineers. Over the years, a wide range of appropriate, robust and affordable components have been developed allowing the manufacture of prostheses and orthoses, for all anatomical levels, that are durable and conform to sound biomechanical principles.

I am grateful to Physiopedia and C.R. Equipment for providing this course. As a physiotherapist/ Professional Nurse currently volunteering at Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, Rehabilitation Clinic as a PT, this course has provided me with tools to work with individuals with amputation in the lower extremity, although currently I am only stationed in the clinic mostly and not in the wards.

Thank you

I am really grateful for this initiative and for all partners who contributed, to permit the free participation of everyone in this course. This course is putting us on new levels of knowledge and will be beneficial in our practices. As known, some of us come from countries where courses of good quality are unavailables or it’s simply difficult to process to paiement in order to participate. This free online course have solved this part of the problems about amputees rehabilitation. I would like personally encourage Physiopedia and the CR Equipements and all the partners who sponsored this.
