Welcome to the Hanger Ivan R. Sabel Foundation ONLINE Community

Physical mobility is one of the most essential qualities of being human, and the field of prosthetics and orthotics has made enormous strides in helping to restore this vital capability to those with physical challenges. Yet, for countless individuals in underserved areas of the United States and developing countries around the world, the availability of the necessary expertise, services and devices is limited — and in many cases, non-existent.

The Hanger Ivan R. Sabel Foundation provides access to prosthetic and orthotic care to individuals in need who could not otherwise afford it — and thus restoring their ability to successfully perform activities of daily living. We do so in part by facilitating the charitable delivery of services, equipment and expertise by caring practitioners. We also seek to create larger, more sustainable solutions by expanding the capabilities of local practitioners in underserved areas through education, collaboration and support.

We invite you to join us as we step Forward to Meet a Global Challenge
