Need someone to talk to?

Momentum has peers spread all over the country who want to share experiences, tips and advice on everything from prosthesis use and activity aids, hygiene and self-care, to your rights as an amputee.

– Good to exchange experiences and test new solutions

Momentum’s 25th anniversary is well underway and members, guests, workshops and suppliers enjoy a varied party program.

In the garden at Scandic Park Hotel, nine arm-amputated party participants have gathered to play bocce in the warming afternoon sun.

A social and educational anniversary weekend

On the 25th anniversary, the 170 guests enjoyed lots of inspiring and good conversations, with new and familiar faces. The weekend also consisted of lots of guidance and advice from suppliers and workshops, which showed a selection of sleeves and prostheses.
