Mobility Clinic on the Waves 2022

In November, 2022, Össur Australia hosted the 8th Mobility Clinic on the Waves, with the guidance of Össur Ambassador and Australian Surf Champion Jade ‘Red’ Wheatley, who has been the Head Coach at this event since starting in 2014.

The event was a huge success and welcomed Athletes of all different age groups and activity levels, who came to embrace the waves in their journey of learning how to surf.

Congratulations to all the Athletes who joined to surf on the day. Surfing highlights include watching Mikayla (Athlete) tackle the waves for the first time since her amputation, which occurred only a few months before the event, and our Junior Athletes Hudson (Athlete) and Alena (Athlete), who we caught riding the waves while standing on the board.

 We can't wait to sea you on the next wave!
