We Train Rehabilitation Professionals
Making assistive devices accessible where they are most needed
There are over 40 million people globally who require prosthetics and orthotics services. More than 80% of this population have NO ACCESS to assistive products, mainly due to the unavailability of services. To change that and make rehabilitation services available to everyone, we educate professionals who deliver these services to people with physical disabilities. Since 2007 more than 350 students from over 22 countries and 4 continents participated in our programs.
Human Study work is guided by our belief that education in prosthetics and orthotics can and should be made accessible to people everywhere in the world, so that persons with disabilities can have a better access to rehabilitation services.

“Many people have lost their limbs and suffered from diseases which created physical problems. These people need help. We are all humans and we depend on each other, thus we should try to help each other.” (Mahpekay Sidiqy, a bilateral amputee and P&O professional from Kabul, Afghanistan)
