Ottobock hosts adaptive training event

Minneapolis, MN-based Ottobock on August 2 sponsored an adaptive training event the evening before the start of the three-day Amputee Coalition National Conference, held in Louisville, KY.

At the Fitness Revolution event, amputee attendees had the opportunity to try out Ottobock fitness prostheses. They also heard personal stories from Ali McWeeny, who lost a leg below the knee in a 2009 boating accident and later became the first female amputee to compete in powerlifting, and adaptive fitness trainer and retired National Football League linebacker David Vobora. Vobora founded the nonprofit Adaptive Training Foundation to help individuals with disabilities regain their athleticism by participating in intense adaptive sports.
