Mobility Clinic FAQ's

What is the Mobility Clinic?

The Mobility Clinic is a 2-day event designed for amputees of all ages and abilities, as well as health care professionals. Amputees will learn basic, intermediate and comprehensive prosthetic running techniques to improve mobility, and help you be more active. The Mobility Clinic will focus on amputee walking, running and sports.

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) 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.
