AMP-Ed Up! National Amputee Conference 2021

17th - 18th September | VIC - Essendon Fields

AMP-Ed Up! National Amputee Conference 2021
Limbs 4 Life is excited to host AMP-ED Up! National Amputee Conference to be held in Melbourne 17 – 18 September 2021.

This conference will educate, encourage and empower you and provide amputee delegates (and their partners) with the opportunity to network with each other and gain valuable information to support your long-term goals.

Our 2019 conference proved to be a huge success and the 2021 conference will be even bigger, with more delegates and more exhibitors!

This two-day action-packed conference will bring together amputees, prosthetic manufacturing companies, assistive technology suppliers and a variety of speakers from a range of sectors - all under the one roof.

Delegates will have the opportunity to see the latest in prosthetic technology, hear from a variety of speakers, interact face-to-face with prosthetic providers, meet other amputees, listen to disability advocates, plus much more!

We want you to leave with a greater education about your prosthetic options, feel empowered to make choices and decisions about your life and encourage members of our community to live independent and fulfilled lives.
