Otto Bock celebrates paralympic sports

Thursday, March 25, 2010

The Olympic Winter Games didn't end Feb. 28. The Paralympic Games, also in Vancouver, followed the Olympics March 12-21. Otto Bock HealthCare, along with the International Paralympic Committee, sponsored a special exhibit at the ski resort Whistler as part of the Paralympic Games. The exhibit, the "Snow Dome," provided information on the paralympic movement and the Paralympic Games, including stories of athletes and background information on technology. Visitors to the exhibit were also able to try "ice sledge hockey" or "sled hockey," a sport that was designed to allow participants who have a physical disability play ice hockey. It's one of the most popular sports at the Paralympic Games.
