Socket interfaces – Salford, 18th September Upper limb personalisation and adaption – Bristol, 28th September Lower limb personalisation and adaption – London, 7th October
- Digital innovations to enhance life with prosthetics – Sheffield, 21st October
The workshops are particularly looking for children and young people with prosthetic needs, who are invited along to help steer the workshops to meet their requirements.
