In response to the rising rates of disability, ISPO launched the international campaign and platform #ISPOWER in 2015 to raise public and decision makers’ awareness and understanding of the transformative power of assistive health technologies and mobility devices in the lives of disabled persons.

We are therefore calling upon you to help us share our vision of a world where barriers to social inclusion and mobility are reduced or eliminated as a result of improved access to rehabilitation, mobility devices, and assistive technology for those who need it.

Why should you participate in the #ISPOWER campaign?

By supporting this important cause and contributing to the online dialogue, you get the opportunity to grow your organisation’s visibility, especially to media and government institutions and shape the ideas and messages in a way that is favourable to your objectives (i.e. increasing scope of practice and service delivery, coverage by insurers, etc.).

Are you ready to contribute? Then help us raise awareness of the importance of assistive technology and rehabilitation.

How can you participate?

Here are some ideas:

  • Post the #ISPOWER logo on your website and social media. Download the logo here.
  • Make a human chain with your colleagues, students and friends.
  • Sports event: give people an opportunity to perform sports activities like a walk, run, bicycle ride, etc.
  • Information session: present the #ISPOWER campaign at your school, university or workplace using the campaign’s PowerPoint presentation.
  • More ideas here.

To promote your #ISPOWER event, download and print our amazing campaign materials (flyers, posters, etc.).

Let us know about your #ISPOWER activity!

Make sure to take pictures and videos and ask for the participants’ feedback on the activity to share with us by using this form.

We look forward to hearing from you!
