During the tournament, Stryker will continue its commitment to educating golf fans about the importance of joint health through an interactive experience in The Mobility Zone, featuring an Accuracy Challenge and Stryker’s Mako Technology.
As the premiere feature of The Mobility Zone, the new Accuracy Challenge will invite visitors to take a shot at surgery with a hands-on experience introducing Art H. Ritis, a life-size model that aims to provide tournament-goers a basic understanding of joint replacement surgery and Stryker’s Mako Technology.
Additionally, orthopaedic surgeons who use Mako Technology will be on-site at The Mobility Zone to discuss joint health and treatment options with fans who are experiencing joint pain or want to learn more.
“The Mobility Zone is a phenomenal opportunity for fans to stop by and learn about joint replacement with our Mako Technology,” said Stuart Simpson, President, Stryker’s Joint Replacement Division. “We are truly committed to our mission of making healthcare better, and this is a great way for us to do that.”
Continuing a relationship that began in 2015, Stryker is proud to support K9s For Warriors at tournaments throughout the year. Tournament-goers can show their support for veterans by purchasing the same hat that PGA TOUR professional and longtime brand ambassador Fred Funk wears on TOUR at The Mobility Zone. With each hat purchase, Stryker will make a donation to K9s For Warriors, the nonprofit organization dedicated to providing service canines to military veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury or other military trauma as a result of military service post 9/11.
Finally, as part of Stryker’s dedication to motivating fans to stay active, Stryker will host the Health Walk at the Houston Open. The Health Walk highlights joint health and golf facts along the course to educate fans as they follow their favorite golfers.
