What is the National Conference?

The National Conference is the premier event for the limb loss community. It is the only event that gathers a thousand people who have lost a limb or were born with limb difference and their family and friends in one location for education, support, fun and networking. Our conference program is packed with education sessions from leading experts on limb loss and prosthetic devices, workshops to help attendees be active in their community, and clinics to improve functional ability.

The event features an exhibit hall with many exhibiting companies representing the leading manufacturers of prosthetic components and assistive technology, and organizations serving the limb loss community.

Check out our 2016 Conference Program to see the types of sessions, events, and exhibitors the Amputee Coalition’s National Conference provides for the limb loss community.
