Blatchford Confirms OPAF Platinum Sponsorship

Blatchford Confirms OPAF Platinum Sponsorship

Posted on 5th April 2019

We are proud to partner with OPAF and the First Clinics as a Platinum Sponsor. Together we can improve the lives of individuals with physical and mobility challenges through innovation, participation, education and raising public awareness.

The Orthotic & Prosthetic Activities Foundation (OPAF) is a non-profit organization founded in 1995 by the former Orthotics and Prosthetics National Office. Now, OPAF generates its own initiatives through partnerships with individuals, organizations, and institutions engaged in improving the quality of life for those with physical and mobility challenges and raising public awareness of physical disability and limb loss.

Donation and sponsorships allow OPAF to grow and sustain their mission: to foster physical fitness, community participation, and peer interaction by providing introductory-level adaptive recreation for individuals with physical and mobility challenges. Life-changing experiences are provided through individual participation and training, education of healthcare professionals, and raising public awareness on a national level.

Biomimetic engineering is at the heart of our design philosophy, where the development of award-winning prostheses is focused on the long-term health and wellbeing of every amputee. OPAF supports this philosophy by providing adaptive clinics for individuals with limb loss or limb difference, encouraging long-term health and wellbeing.

We are thrilled to become a platinum sponsor of OPAF and we look forward to supporting opportunities provided to the community of people we serve.
