Final report of 2008-2009 sustainable strategic partnerships of scale: SPEEAD (sporting prosthetics for everyday and elite athletes with a disability)

Sarah Deans, Sandra Sexton

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

In considering a strategy for research development in prosthetics in the National Centre for Prosthetics and Orthotics, the importance of making involvement in sport more accessible to those athletically inclined became apparent. In preparation for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, there was also a clear need to herald a renewed focus on sport for those with mobility challenges and empower those who might never have participated to become involved1. There was a desire to build an enhanced national profile in terms of expertise and research in sporting prostheses and to promote our field of prosthetics. SPEEAD continues to have two aims:
- To build the level and nature of expertise and research capacity in the wider prosthetics practitioner community
- To address a postgraduate instructional course need in the UK prosthetics practitioner community
