Meet the IC2A team

The IC2A Team:

Alex Cosemans (Belgium) appreciating the support of Susan Jüptner (Germany) in organising the partners programme for a meeting in Leipzig, Germany.

IC2A depends on a team of volunteers from all the IC2A member associations to achieve our goals. At times, when we have an event or initiative that we need more help with, we co-opt more volunteers with different experiences and expertise.

The IC2A Board 2018 – 2020:

In May 2018 we held an Annual General Meeting in Leipzig Germany and our elected Board was formed according to the regulations shown in our IC2A Governing Document. The term office for our elected Board members is 2 years. The IC2A Board is comprised of 3 people elected by our country member amputee associations. Click on the links to meet the Board members:

Beth Sheehan is the project officer for IC2A. As an international consultant and exercise physiologist, Beth brings a passion and experience in the rehabilitation and disability sector with a particular interest and focus on the prosthetic and orthotic sector.

For the OneHand project, Beth is facilitating the project’s development of guidelines for the upper limb rehabilitation process from amputation through to community integration, ensuring that the service user voice is at the centre of the project and its subsequent outcomes.

The One Hand Project:

IC2A (International Confederation of Amputee Associations) is taking part in a new project funded by the European Commission called the OneHand Project. IC2A will be working with The Simulation Crew (TSC) and other key partners. The project’s purpose is to create an improved and user centred solution for upper limb prosthetic users.
