The International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO) reported in December that its 16th World Congress is slated for May 8-11 in Cape Town, South Africa. “Assistive technology for all” is the motto for the biennial event, which this year will include a symposium on global assistive technology issues organized jointly by ISPO and the World Health Organization.
The ISPO congress promotes interdisciplinary discussions among international prosthetists-orthotists, physicians, therapists, and engineers, who gather to consider developments in O&P treatments and therapies.
The congress is being held in collaboration with ISPO South Africa; major sponsors are Otto Bock and Össur.
More than 2000 delegates and some 100 exhibitors are expected to attend the 2017 congress, according to a release from the society.
