Optimal positioning Teamwork

The International Society of Wheelchair Professionals (ISWP) has come a long way since its founding in 2015.

ISWP developed the Basic Service Provision Test, which has been taken by over 5,000 professionals from 99 countries across the globe.

The Basic Test is available in 15 different languages. In addition, ISWP developed the more advanced Basic Wheelchair Service Provider Certification. So far over 100 service providers from 25 countries have achieved this certification. You can, too, at https://wheelchairnetwork.org/.

To compliment the service standards work, ISWP created online training modules, along with both the basic and an intermediate test in multiple languages. All of ISWP's training and testing content is based on WHO and other international organizations wheelchair service provision standards.

In the area of product standards and testing, ISWP has worked with ISO technical committees on caster specifications with a special focus on durability and corrosion. Four papers have been published in the area of evidence-based practice. ISWP hosts an academic data archive for policy research, and has completed studies of wheelchair use in El Salvador and other countries.
