Transforming lives with mobility
For over 20 years, we have been increasing access to mobility and improving the quality of life for children, teens, and adults with physical disabilities in low- and middle-income countries.
We help people with mobility impairments maximize their independence and quality of life by building and strengthening rehabilitation services, including wheelchair provision. UCP Wheels for Humanity is one of the only organizations in the world that specializes in both physical rehabilitation and the provision of assistive technologies (AT), two interlinked services with dramatic impact on the lives of people with mobility impairments.
ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGIES (AT)
Since 1996, we have been a pioneer in the design, manufacture, and provision of low-cost wheelchairs and other AT.
We work multilaterally, with health, social protection and education actors, to ensure that communities know where and how to access rehabilitation and AT services, and that health professionals and technicians know how to provide those services.
We provide technical assistance and capacity building to physical rehabilitation professionals to develop contextually relevant technical capabilities in line with global standards.
We coordinate key stakeholders in the private, public, and social sectors to promote the integration and regulation of rehabilitation and AT services within health systems.
