Össur is a pioneer and global leader in the the development, production, and sale of non-invasive orthopaedics.
True advocates of ‘Life Without Limitations‘‘, Össur works with individuals, clinicians and diverse communities to support a better quality of life for millions of people around the world.
While our partnership formally began in 2019, Össur have collaborated with Motivation Australia on various projects long before that. They were a funder of our major project in Samoa in 2016 that saw the building, resourcing and launching of the National Health Service’s Mobility Device Service.
In 2019, Össur supported the training of 10 local rehabilitation professionals to become the next generation of basic level wheelchair service trainers. During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021 Össur facilitated a virtual mobility clinic for the National Orthotics and Prosthetics Service of Papua New Guinea.
Motivation Australia have welcomed Össur staff to volunteer on our Pacific Wayfinders mentoring programme, which matches a Pacific health professional with an expert or leader in Australia, New Zealand or the Pacific.
Gifts and giving
Össur also facilitates a payroll giving scheme and has pledged to match employee giving as well as making additional financial donations. These donations are extremely valuable and will always be expended fully and directly on our programs.
We are also incredibly grateful for their many donations of devices and equipment to our partners, including shipping, enabling people to access life changing assistive technology and improve their mobility.
Össur continue to make a valuable contribution to our work, particularly in the beautiful Blue Pacific and we look forward to growing this relationship in the coming years.
