Suggestions for Prosthetic Orthotic Clinics that Must Remain Open During the COVID-19 Pandemic


Dear ISPO Community,

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed enormous strain on healthcare services and assistive technology practitioners.

In response, ISPO has initiated a working document “Suggestions for Prosthetic Orthotic Clinics that Must Remain Open During the COVID-19 Pandemic” that provides guidance for people and organizations that provide prosthetics and orthotics services, and are able to continue serving people who require assistive devices during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This globally relevant document provides information that can be useful for all practitioners and administrators but does not include local or regional guidance from health authorities and governments. Please consider the information in this document in the context of your local or regional situation.

As a working document, suggestions, recommendations, or relevant links to other information are encouraged. ISPO will release updates as new or revised information becomes available.

Please email your comments to ISPO at, or contact ISPO through other means listed at the bottom of this page.

We appreciate your efforts to safely continue to assist people in need during this time.

Please stay safe and take good care.
With kind regards,


International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO)
