Mobility Clinic on the Snow 2022


The team at Össur Australia were pleased to host the first Mobility Clinic on the Snow event in over 3 years. The 4-day event took place at Thredbo Resort, NSW in collaboration with Disabled Winter Sports Australia.

The Mobility Clinic on the Snow welcomed 8 Athletes of all ages and abilities between 6 and 59 years old. Out of the 8 Athletes, there were 5 skiers and 3 snowboarders who had the opportunity to learn specific exercises and techniques from Össur Head Coach, Joany Badenhorst. The Athletes were partnered with a guide from Disabled Winter Sports Australia to ensure that their mobility goals on the snow were achieved. We are so grateful to have been able to run the event again, and we cannot wait for the next one in 2023!
