What we do

DevelopingPhysio is steadily becoming a centre of excellence for the provision of Physiotherapy teaching materials to communities in low resourced settings.
Through learning the appropriate skills from visiting qualified physios, locally trained students find their way to being able to treat patients themselves through this teaching curriculum.

The curriculum is split into thirty teaching modules (these include Strokes, Amputees, Burns, Cerebral palsy, Spinal cord injuries, Polio, Leprosy, Back pain, Fractures and more). All modules are non-linguistic and use picture flow diagrams to guide the student safely through assessment, diagnosis and treatment stages. See how it works...

80% of people with disabilities live in developing countries....

This was agreed by more than 180 world leaders at the UN Millennium Summit...
