About the Speakers:
Michael Pearce C.P. (c)
Originally from the United Kingdom, Michael gained his certification in Prosthetics in 1994 after spending four years in a craft apprenticeship program in limb manufacture and repair at J.E. Hanger Co. Ltd in Roehampton, London, England. After four years of clinical experience, Michael moved to St. John’s, Newfoundland in 1998 to complete his prosthetic internship. He then moved to London, Ontario where he continued to practice clinically for four more years, before joining Ottobock in the summer of 2005.
Steve Wall R.T.P. (c)
Steve Wall has been an amputee since the age of 20, after losing his leg in a fluke waterskiing accident in 1987. Since then, Steve graduated from the George Brown College Prosthetic technical program and ski raced for Canada. Steve oversees the Central Fabrication lab for Ottobock Canada. He also spends time travelling Canada, engaged in socket technology, as well as training new and current MPK wearers on how to obtain the best performance of their devices. Steve’s latest endeavor calls on his athleticism; training and helping amputees to discover running and skiing on Ottobock’s latest fitness prosthetic devices. In his free, time Steve trains and races cross country mountain bikes in provincial sanctioned abled body races. Steve truly has a commitment and passion for helping his fellow amputee friends stand up and live large!
