When Nguyen Tran Le Uyen (3 years old)  was 2 years old, she was diagnosed with hemiplegia, the orthotic adjustment and rehabilitative treatments help her to learn to walk without any problems.

Rehabilitation and orthopaedic services, which are urgently needed, are often not provided adequately in health care facilities in Vietnam. This applies particularly to prosthetic & orthotic and assistive devices (POAD) services. In our project we are systematically strengthening these services in the province of Thừa Thiên-Huế in the Huế Rehabilitation Hospital. The objective is to establish a holistic treatment system around these POAD services. Patient identification, treatments, orthopaedic techniques, data management and follow-up treatment are all given equal consideration. We also train qualified personnel
