Physionet ensures that equipment it sends to low and middle income countries (LMICs) is safe and usable. Some of the equipment is unfamiliar to recipients so the charity provides training in

  • appropriate selection of items
  • correct fitting
  • adjustment
  • maintenance
  • decommisioning

Childrens’ equipment in particular can be complex and needs to be regularly adjusted for growth.

Physionet has devised a training programme primarily for childrens items but also for hoists and slings. This is available virtually as well as in person. It is delivered by qualified therapists registered in the UK.
