The ICRC Physical Rehabilitation Unit was established in 1979, marking the start of a long-term commitment to promote the use of a technology appropriate to the specific context in which the ICRC operates. In low-income or developing countries affected by war, the role of this inexpensive and high quality technology is crucial, making rehabilitation services more affordable and accessible and making the long-term survival of rehabilitation centres more likely.
The Polypropylene technology brochure provides the necessary information about the advantages, resources and appropriateness of using this technology for the production of orthopaedic devices.
