Disability Rights Legal Center honors Ossur
Date:11/25/2008

November 25, 2008 (LOS ANGELES, CA) -- The Disability Rights Legal Center (DRLC), which for four decades has advocated for the civil rights of people with disabilities, has recognized Ossur, a trusted and leading global innovator and provider of non-invasive orthopaedic products and services, with the Charles D. Siegal President's Award.

Tim McCarthy, vice president of Prosthetics for Ossur Americas, accepted the award on Thursday before 500 local and national leaders in the legal, entertainment, and other industries at the DRLC's Annual Gala in downtown Los Angeles. Mr. McCarthy and his team are credited with leading an entire industry into the Bionic age of prosthetics with Ossur's successful market entry via three groundbreaking product launches: the Rheo Knee, the Power Knee and the Proprio Foot. All three products have gained international recognition and acclaim.

There to present the award was April Holmes, the fastest female amputee in the world.

April owns the World Records (women's T44 classification) in the 100m, 200m and 400m dashes, and came home from the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games with the Gold medal in the 100m race. She is also a member of Team Ossur, a group of elite amputee athletes sponsored by Ossur because - through their impressive achievements - they embody Ossur's call for all disabled people to live a Life without Limitations.

"The Siegal Award recognizes the extraordinary contributions that Ossur and its inventors have made to the world community," said Paula Pearlman, Esq., and the DRLC's executive director. "Ossur's manufacture of prosthetics and bionics - that have effectively revolutionized the way people with mobility disabilities experience the world - reinforces our organization's values of inclusion and equality. In addition, Ossur's inventors' vision and limitless expectations parallel our organization's motto of "Protecting the Possibilities," she added.
