WHO Wheelchair Training Packages

Following the release in 2008 of the WHO Guidelines on the provision of Manual 
Wheelchairs in less resourced settings, the Disability and Rehabilitation unit at the World 
Health Organization is now developing Wheelchair Training Packages. 
Statistics show that less than 5% of those in need of a wheelchair actually have access to 
properly fitted wheelchairs. We feel that health professionals have a role to ensure that every 
individual receives a suitable wheelchair according to their specific needs and environments. 
The wheelchair should fit well, be safe, durable, affordable and able to be maintained locally. 
These requirements are in line with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 
which advocates for 'effective measures to ensure personal mobility with the greatest 
possible independence for persons with disabilities’.
WHO is in process of developing two Training Packages for appropriate wheelchair service 
provision: 1) Basic level, and 2) Intermediate level. The purpose of the Training Packages is 
to establish universal minimum competencies for wheelchair provision, to increase the 
number personnel trained in wheelchair provision, and to improve the integration of 
wheelchair service delivery within rehabilitation services.

A study has mapped out the way the brain generates empathy, even for those who differ physically from themselves.
USC researcher Lisa Aziz-Zadeh found that empathy for someone to whom one can directly relate, for example, because they are experiencing pain in a limb that one possesses, is mostly generated by the intuitive, sensory-motor parts of the brain.
However, empathy for someone to whom one cannot directly relate relies more on the rationalizing part of the brain.
Aziz-Zadeh, assistant professor at USC’s Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy, said though they are engaged to differing degrees depending on the circumstance, it appears that both the intuitive and rationalizing parts of the brain work in tandem to create the sensation of empathy.
