The International Society of Wheelchair Professionals (ISWP) was launched in February 2015 with a mission to provide wheelchair users worldwide with the best technology and service.
The Wheelchair International Network — WIN — is a one-of-a-kind network for wheelchair service professionals, training organizations and manufacturers. It was designed to help facilitate training and certification within the wheelchair sector. The network allows clinicians to participate in and track courses, assessments, and continuing education and market their skills to employers, manufacturers and clients.
Currently, the field lacks a formal certification because one cannot be established without available continuing education to allow clinicians to recertify, and a way to display certification. Imagine going through weeks of training, studying and testing to receive only a printable certificate, not available on a network. This provides very limited opportunities for career development and promotion.
WIN will provide a database of trainings and assessment results where clinicians can choose to advertise their skills to employers, manufacturers and clients. WIN also will provide a platform for online continuing education courses, webinars and resources for in-person courses can be easily found, moving the wheelchair sector towards formal certification.
