Samar Ismail

To guarantee the continuity and development of the project in Jordan, a 3D supervisor position has been created in Amman. Samar Ismail, a physiotherapist, is now in charge of implementing this project and ensuring its sustainability. She organises the work of the team in collaboration with the patients.

“I’ve been working as a physiotherapist at the reconstructive surgery hospital in Amman since 2011. Many of my patients are war-wounded.  After an assessment, I provide them with the appropriate pre- and post-operative treatment. The 3D prosthesis project has attracted a lot of attention because it is new technology that can be used to provide remote assistance to patients in difficult areas or crisis situations."
