Mobility Clinic 2023
The Össur Mobility Clinic 2023, was held in Essendon, Victoria on Monday 17 and Tuesday 18 April and was an outstanding event!
Over 100+ attendees had the opportunity to unlock their #LifeWithoutLimitations and learn basic, intermediate and comprehensive mobility techniques. The clinic featured a variety of sports activities, including Taekwondo, Yoga, Lawn Bowls, and more, for all amputees, regardless of age or ability, to participate in and enjoy.
Head Coach Cathy Howells and her expert coaches guided attendees through the clinic, offering their extensive knowledge and experience in mobility training. Össur Ambassadors were also present to motivate and push attendees through the Mobility Clinic, inspiring them to reach their full potential.
The Össur Mobility Clinic was an incredible opportunity for attendees to connect with fellow amputees, challenge themselves, and improve their mobility. It was an unforgettable experience filled with fun and inspiring moments that attendees will cherish for a lifetime.
