Oceania Seating Symposium 2022

Seating To Go recently hosted the 3rd Oceania Seating Symposium, an international event focusing on wheeled mobility and seating. Over 365 attendees from 17 countries joined for the three-day virtual conference.

The opening speaker was our very own Amanda Lowry, a Seating To Go service user. Amanda has a spinal injury from a surfing accident nine years ago. She is currently working towards a PhD examining welfare and care in high-performance disability sports that will help make it possible for minority groups, including people with disability, to feel included.

Thank you, Amanda, for sharing with us your expertise and inspiration! To hear Amanda's inspiring story, click here.
