As a business we believe strongly in partnership and philanthropy. Every year we make a number of charitable contributions to organisations we feel closely aligned to. The majority of these contributions are for educational bursaries to professional bodies to support their members and facilitate continuing professional development. Our support of the Orthopaedic and Trauma Alliance (OTA) has spanned many years, particularly given the synergy of our LimbO range with the work of the organisation.
OTA is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to promote and provide education and networking opportunities for those working within in orthopaedic and trauma related healthcare. More specifically, it offers membership and support for those healthcare professionals in orthopaedics, trauma, casting, musculoskeletal splinting and rehab.
Of course, this specialist area is highly dependent on good post-injury care. Maintaining the integrity of a cast or protecting an injury is vital, both to the short-term and long-term outcome for the patient. As a result, our LimbO protector is extremely useful as part of the healing process for musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, and is used and recommended by many practitioners in this field.
We value our close relationship with the OTA and were pleased to receive this testimonial from the team:
“Members of the Orthopaedic and Trauma Alliance (OTA) have been fortunate in receiving
Bursary funding from LimbO over the last few years. This has allowed more than 20
members to attend the OTA Conference giving them the opportunity to network and
gain/ expand their knowledge and practical skills. The funds are allocated to members who
would otherwise have difficulty in obtaining funding and who have demonstrated how they
will benefit from attending.”
Bronwyn Delbridge, Chairperson Orthopaedic &Trauma Alliance
Sadly, this year’s conference was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but we are looking forward to supporting the OTA as part of next year’s re-arranged event in February. Bursary places are available and can be applied for online on or before 1st December 2020.
