The ICF is structured around the following broad components: Body functions and structure Activities related to tasks and actions by an individual and participation involvement in a life situation Additional information on severity and environmental factors Functioning and disability are viewed as a complex interaction between the health condition of the individual and the contextual factors of the environment as well as personal factors. The picture produced by this combination of factors and dimensions is of "the person in his or her world". The classification treats these dimensions as interactive and dynamic rather than linear or static. It allows for an assessment of the degree of disability, although it is not a measurement instrument.

Today ICIDH is available in 15 languages including Japanese and Chinese, and is used in a variety of fields such as medical, vocational, educational, and social rehabilitation, policy and administration, statistics, research, and education and training.
ICIDH consists of two parts: The ICIDH permits a highly complex issue to be easily grasped to a certain extent, and has gained almost worldwide recognition as a valuable tool in the perception of the problem of disablement, in describing this problem and developing solutions for this problem.

Medical treatment response to disease or impairment, and rehabilitation or training to disability, and social support to micro environment. It is neither treatment nor training but assistance and support.
Such a theory would in particular be designed to enable explanation and prognosis of disablement creation processes as well as development of causally founded methods of intervention in rehabilitation.

These factors can largely be grouped into environmental or extrinsic factors on the one hand and personal or intrinsic factors on the other. Last ten years in Japan, we experienced a successful policy expansion in mental health with the help of the conceptual framework of the ICIDH. In order to overcome the definitional and overlap problems it is suggested, for one, to clearly distinguish between the phenomena and their symptoms and, for the other, to eliminate any overlap that may exist in the formulation of the concepts the definitions of the basic terms build on.
Notwithstanding its successes, the ICIDH not only raises practical problems but theoretical ones as well. It was one of a series of review meetings which is planned to be held once in every two years during the Decade. It proposes the concepts and definitions of impairment, disability and handicap and discusses the relation between these dimensions showing the conceptual model illustrated in Figure 1.
It emphasizes the role of contextual or environmental factors and bidirectional interaction among factors replacing the unidirectional relationship in figure 1. This person may be able to perform the daily activity reading using some type of assistive technology to overcome this handicap.
