Welcome to the home page for United Forum of the Americas. This year, US-ISPO is proud to have merged our very successful Reaching Beyond Our Borders (aka RBOBs) conferences with the also successful United Frontiers (Uniendos Fronteras) conferences to create the United Forum of the Americas.
United Forum of the Americas is a partnership of the U.S. Member Society-ISPO and the Members Societies of Panama, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Costa Rica.
The international conference offers a forum for integration, accessibility education, and resources for physical rehabilitation specialists.
RBOB conferences have been established to facilitate the exchange of information and resources among healthcare professionals involved with the rehabilitation of individuals who require orthoses and prostheses in order to maximize their level of function and independence. This includes surgeons, physicians, therapists, prosthetists, orthotists, pedorthists, shoe makers, engineers, rehabilitation directors, nurses, manufacturers and more. United Forum of the Americas represents the fourth biennial RBOB conference. For a sample of our last RBOB conference in the Dominican Republic, click here.
It is an opportunity to expand your network of rehabilitation professionals, learn about progressive treatment options across the Western Hemisphere, strengthen collaborative efforts and broaden the rehabilitation bridge in our regional community.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you in Costa Rica!
