Making headlines this week
The 2016 Paralympic Games (7-18 September) kicks off in Rio de Janeiro this week and features a number of para-sports stars who have collaborated, or are collaborating, with Icexpress in pushing the boundaries of innovative sport solutions for amputees.
Jumping Kids was launched to address the needs of young South Africans without access to adequate prosthetics. Its vision is to allow kids to be kids - to play, run, climb and jump just like any able-bodied kid.
In 2011, Icexpress Progressive Prosthetics launched the Is Ability Sports Club to address the growing need for sports and recreation opportunities for those living with physical disabilities.
Within 24 months 'Team Icexpress' became the fastest growing club of its kind in South Africa boasting no less than seven international athletes with top world rankings, as well as a healthy number of up-and-coming stars.
