Össur Mobility Clinic 2017

The Össur Mobility Clinic was back again in 2017 and was held on the 10th and 11th of April in Melbourne, VIC.

Össur’s Mobility Clinic is a great event for amputees of all ages and abilities to meet other amputees, create new friends and learn how to improve overall mobility through exercises and activities designed to increase confidence, balance and strength.

Dennis Glasemann, one of the APC team members who attended said, “the amazing  thing about Mobility Clinic was to see people engaging, and making the most out of their abilities. I would 100% recommend it to ‘everyone’ to attend the next event.”
