Össur Academy

The Össur Academy is a knowledge based society designed to provide scientifically based education and knowledge to orthotists, prosthetists, patients, medical professionals and Össur employees. At Össur, we strongly believe that offering education on a continual basis helps further the development of professionals and patient care in the industry.

The clinical training centre includes complete fabrication facilities for measurement, casting, rectification, and fabrication of prostheses. A large walking area is complete with parallel bars as well as a ramp and stairs for dynamic alignment and gait training. The lecture room seats up to 10 students and is equipped with state of the art multimedia equipment.

A range of hands-on training programs are offered at the facility and on-site at the request of local O&P facilities.

The training centre also hosts seminars on advanced Össur technologies, including the RHEO KNEE, Pro-Flex and PROPRIO FOOT.

Össur Academy in Australia

Harvey Blackney, Ossur Australia's regional director stated, "The establishment of the regional training centre represents a tremendous opportunity for prosthetists across all areas in Australia and New Zealand. It's also a clear signal of
Össur´s willingness to support high level prosthetic training in the region, and Össur´s commitment to Australia and New Zealand in the future".

Clinical Education Director, Scott Elliott, describes Ossur Academy's aims: One of our main goals is to build Össur Academy's presence across Australia and New Zealand. The Academy is all about increasing vocational success in the O&P field in terms of knowledge and professionalism. We want to provide practitioners in the region with more direct support and access to critical clinical information and training that will benefit their patients and their practice.
