Education and vocational training

In the prosthetics industry, education and vocational training equip professionals with the specialised skills needed to deliver adequate care to individuals with limb differences.

On this page

When education is neglected in the prosthetics industry, it leads to a workforce ill-equipped to meet the evolving needs of individuals with limb differences.

We are particularly interested supporting women with lived experience of limb-loss into the workforce, creating an equitable workforce, and helping female patients feel more comfortable when being fitted with a prosthesis.

Furthermore, continuous professional development drives innovation within the field, leading to more effective care solutions and the advancement of industry standards.

Ultimately, investing in the education of prosthetic professionals is vital for developing a skilled workforce that meets modern care challenges and supports individuals with limb differences in achieving independence and enhanced quality of life.
