U.S. ISPO – U.S. National Member Society of the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics ISPO
US ISPO is a National Member Society of ISPO, the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics. ISPO is a multi-disciplinary organization comprised of persons who have a professional interest in the clinical, educational and research aspects of prosthetics, orthotics, rehabilitation engineering and related areas.
ISPO was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1970 by a group of surgeons, prosthetist-orthotists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and engineers to promote improvements in the care of all persons with neuromuscular and skeletal impairments.
ISPO presently has 2800 members worldwide in 84 countries. Where there are more than five members in any country, or region, they may band together to form a National Member Society. National Member Societies have been established in 35 countries. It is beneficial to form National Member Societies due to the representation and voice gained within the governing structure of the Society.
