3D technology and tele-rehabilitation to ensure no one is left behind.

Supported by the Belgian Cooperation (DGD), the IMP&ACTE 3D project is a pilot initiative implemented in Niger, Mali and Togo since 2016.

In many low-income and middle-income countries, less than 15% of people who require assistive devices, including artificial limbs, have access to them. Handicap International began operational research into the feasibility and advantages of 3D printing technology in the field of physical rehabilitation since 2016. The IMP&ACTE 3D project aims at reducing the manufacturing time of orthopedic devices and offering services to people living in conflict zones, extremely remote areas, and regions with little or no healthcare infrastructure.
