Össur Talk, November 8th 2013

Reporter: Vanessa Miller

On the Friday night social 8/11/13, despite the traffic we had about 30 people and had an interesting talk from a company called Össur. They are a worldwide company who supply orthopaedic products to companies and individuals.

Michael and Giles from Össur put together an interesting presentation encouraging the audience to ask questions. They focussed on knee issues linking this with Ski associated problems. They explained about the various ligaments prone to damage in the knee and suggested preventative injury measures and post injury measures to assist. They brought along some of their knee braces CTI, which they referred to as the ultimate knee orthosis for preventative care and post injury care. These can be off the shelf or prescribed and fitted specifically for the individual. They also have an online web shop for standard braces and supports where SCOM members can get a 10% discount. The company also have a helpline that can assist you to choose a product to suit your problem.

The code has been put onto the SCOM website but is SPORT1002 for reference.

Great Evening - Great Talk!
