Salus University partners with Hanger Clinic to host individuals with limb loss for Adaptive Sports Day

This past Saturday, June 25th, Salus University partnered with the Hanger Clinic to host a full day of sports, networking, and peer support for individuals with limb loss or orthotic bracing. The Adaptive Sports Day event welcomed individuals and their families to participate in activities that have been customized for those who live with limb loss or orthotic bracing, including golf, volleyball, tennis, yoga, boxing, and more.

The event coincided with the launch of a new master’s program for orthotics and prosthetics (O&P) at Salus University, which will begin this fall (2022-2023 academic year), and the development of a state-of-the-art O&P lab and training facility. Orthotic and prosthetic professionals design and fabricate medically supportive devices, like external braces or artificial limbs, to support and complement the lifestyle of individuals with limb loss.
