Keynote

MONDAY MORNING – KEVIN CARROLL

Kevin Carroll is a prosthetist, visionary researcher, skilled educator and author, native to Ireland, with a guiding philosophy of “people first.” Kevin is Vice-President of Prosthetics for Hanger Clinic, a prosthetics and orthotics provider in the United States, and travels around the world providing care for patients with some of the most unique cases, disabled athletes even a tailless dolphin. He is known for his compassion, humor and intellect to solve some of orthotics and prosthetics most difficult cases. Most notably, in 2005, Carroll developed WintersGel, a material that disperses pressure evenly from a prosthetic limb onto skin, after creating a prosthetic for a baby dolphin, Winter who lost his tail after becoming entangled in the ropes of a crab trap. Based on this success, the material, patented Hanger ComfortFlex Socket System; is now used for human amputees.

The real life survival story of Winter and Mr. Carroll’s innovative prosthetic tail design came alive in a 3D feature film starring Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Kris Kristopherson, and Harry Connick, Jr. During Kevin’s Keynote, he will be sharing the amazing story of his work with the dolphin named Winter, the star of “A Dolphin Tale” and “A Dolphin Tale 2.” 

NCURA is part of a select group!
Kevin accepts only a few select speaking engagements each year and donates all of the proceeds to Camp No Limits. Camp No Limits hails as the only camp for young people with limb loss to attend with their families. Their mission is to educate and empower young people with limb loss to discover and develop a healthy, happy and independent lifestyle.
