On August 23rd, 2017 a running symposium was held at Fortius Sport and Health Centre. The Symposium was run by Francois Van der Watt, US Paralympic Track and Field Team Prosthetist and involved amputees of all ages, abilities, and activity levels. Barber was proud to join two of our patients at the clinic, both of whom were learning to run with their prostheses for the first time! They were AWESOME!
Francois certainly had them working up a sweat, going through various drills and exercises, with running-specific componentry. Congratulations to ALL of the participants and thank you to Francois and the team from Ossur for putting together a great event!
