As a global, multidisciplinary, non-governmental organization aiming to improve the quality of life for persons who may benefit from prosthetic, orthotic, mobility and assistive devices, ISPO provides an effective platform for the exchange and communication on all aspects of the science, practice, and education associated with the provision of prosthetic and orthotic care, rehabilitation engineering, and related areas. The Society has approximately 3,300 members of different professional disciplines in over 100 countries.

Every two years, ISPO invites professionals involved in the care of persons in need of prosthetic, orthotic, mobility, and assistive devices to its unique and interactive flagship meeting, the ISPO World Congress.

In particular, the purpose was to:

• Demonstrate/discuss the importance of telehealth in light of the current pandemic,
• Provide examples/model of telehealth that have been put into practical use.
