There is a vast unsatisfied need for physiotherapy equipment such as wheelchairs, frames and specialist paediatric equipment in other areas of the world. PhysioNet has been active since 2005 collecting equipment across the UK and shipping out to many different parts of the world. See a list of our shipments for 2018. A list of our 2017, and prior, shipments is here).
PhysioNet makes direct contact with organisations who are trying to support their disabled and arranges to ship equipment directly to them.
The first shipment to the newly established Wheelchair Foundation of South Africa was made on Saturday 28th July.
