Following the great success of the Invacare International Symposium in previous years during the ‘Invacare World Team Cups’ and the 2011 ‘Invacare Doubles Masters’, Invacare will present its first International Forum (in English) during the 2012 Invacare Doubles Masters. This year, the topic is ‘‘Making Life’s Experiences Possible™”.
“You’re not disabled by the disabilities you have,
you are able by the abilities you have.”
- Oscar Pistorius –
This year, the South African Paralympics and Olympics athlete, Oscar Pistorius who epitomises our brand promise “Making Life’s Experiences Possible™” will be joining us to explain what it means for him in both his sport’s life and life in general.
Does Oscar approach his day to day life and challenges in the same way as he approaches his track race events?
