At the start of a group of amputees, a de facto association, called the Ile aux Trésors, was formed in 1993. On the basis of this structure, AMPTRAIDE asbl was formed in 2007.
Since 2015, AMPTRAIDE asbl is federal and covers the entire Belgian territory thanks to its collaboration with ANVASPORT vzw.
At the ISPO World Congress held in Lyon in June 2015, AMTPRAIDE asbl participated in the creation of the International Confederation of Amputee Association (IC2A).
