Mobility Clinic 2021
Mobility Clinic Cancelled
We are devastated to announce the cancellation of the Össur Mobility Clinic 2021. We had hoped this year would have been much different with the return of face to face events, however, due to the uncertainty of safely hosting events with ongoing outbreaks, border closers and tightened government restrictions this is not possible despite our best efforts for postponements.
The Mobility Clinic will be returning in April 2022 and we look forward to seeing you all in Sydney next year. Please stay safe and healthy, and thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times.
How do I cancel my registration?
A full refund for your Mobility Clinic registration fee will be provided to you upon request. Please contact us by Friday 1 October 2021 via [email protected] if you would like your registration fee refunded.
If you choose not to contact us regarding your refund, your registration fee will automatically be donated to the Limb Management Clinic at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick.
Can I register for the 2022 Mobility Clinic event?
Registrations will open in early 2022. Sign up to our Mobility Clinic newsletter if you would like to get notified when registration opens.
About Mobility Clinic

What is the aim of the Clinic?
The aim is for amputees to gain increased mobility on their prostheses, through exercises and activities designed to increase confidence, balance, and strength.
Are there any activities or presentation that are tailored for professionals working with amputees?
The Clinic features presentations from our expert coaches Cathy (physiotherapist), David (prosthetist), Brett (running coach), Shail (paediatric physiotherapist) and Don (Paralympian). These presentations are for all attendees but supply clinical information for the attending health professionals. The Clinic is a “hands-on” learning experience for professionals. You are paired with an amputee for the clinic and will assist them in all aspects: running, exercises, mobility activities and sports. Amputees attending the clinic are of all ages, abilities, and levels of amputation. We have had unilateral, bilateral and quadrilateral amputees attend past clinics.
The Össur Mobility Clinic 2021 has been accredited by AOPA, all attending CPOs will be awarded 14.5 CPD points.
