To you who are amputated
Are you recently amputated or a relative of someone who is?

Momentum works locally throughout the country through peer work and in local teams that offer social events and activities.
Nationally, Momentum works on social policy work, development of information materials, courses and coordination of projects.
Norway is a small country and much of the development in prosthesis technology, sleeve technology, surgery and much more takes place abroad. Momentum therefore participates in important arenas internationally.
