Guangdong Rehabilitation Base for Persons with Disabilities: A model application of ICF framework

By ZHANG YONGAN


I have proudly designed and built the Guangdong Rehabilitation Base for Persons with Disabilities after more than three decades of research in supporting persons with disabilities. The infrastructure meets the criteria set by the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), a framework approved by WHO states in 2001, with the support of the government.


The Guangdong Rehabilitation Base for Persons with Disabilities has a total construction area of 120,000 square meters. It is to be developed in a three-phase process, made available by a total investment of 850 million yuan ($127.45 million). The first phase has been completed and put into use. It has a children’s rehabilitation area and an assistive device area. The children’s rehabilitation area focuses on providing educational rehabilitation services to 600 children having disabilities related to hearing, vision, intelligence, cerebral palsy and autism. The assistive device area has an assistive device museum with engineering rehabilitation, occupational rehabilitation and social rehabilitation facilities. It provides prosthetics, orthotics and other assistive devices as well as occupational ability appraisal services.
