Injured Soldiers Winter Sports Clinic
Northern Micro has been involved with this important organization for 2 years now. This important group takes wounded soldiers, many of which are amputees, and teaches them how to ski and do other winter sports.
Harnessing the power of emerging technologies, prosthetic apparatuses are created to enable injured soldiers to ski, snowboard, play sledge hockey. The magic of this organization lies in the fact that they extend the instruction to a soldier’s whole family, so that they may begin to rebuild new memories and experiences post-injury.
Often times, when soldiers return wounded, the entire family dynamic changes. These new skills allow the soldier to discover a new independence and capacity, so that through his/her growth, their whole family can grow.
