Abstract: The Biomedical Engineering Discipline at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) started to offer rehabilitation service to people with physical disabilities on Chinese Mainland in 1995. In 2001, with the support of the University funding for students' learning experience on Chinese Mainland, the undergraduate students with concentration in Prosthetics and Orthotics (P&O) were under the supervision of the academic staff to provide voluntary orthotic service to children with cerebral palsy in Maoming City in Guangdong Province. The students were then supported to visit hospitals, rehabilitation centres and resource centres in Guangdong Province in the following years. In 2005, the School of Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania collaborated with PolyU to set up an annual Global Biomedical Service project which aimed to facilitate students of the two Universities to participate in community service learning project on Chinese Mainland.
