Helen McCormack
Specialist Orthotist @Peacock medical
Helen McCormack is an Orthotist based in Newcastle upon Tyne. She works in general clinics with specialism in Paediatrics and Pectus. Since her first exposure to hypermobility during university placements she has recognised the stigma attached to the subject, something which has been further bolstered in her career. This has motivated her to tackle the obvious difficulties in diagnosis and the challenges presented when communicating this to the patient and their next of kin. Over the last few years she has been to seek out further information and working alongside other AHPs to see the prevalence and effect of hypermobile symptoms, EDS, Marfans and other HSD. Also, the impact that diagnoses early on in intervention, even in patients that are undiagnosed, can have. She is hosting an educational evening for BAPO, involving an open discussion on hypermobile symptomatic patients within Prosthetics and Orthotics. The aim is to address what we already understand about these symptoms, and
Kate Pearce
Education and Training Prosthetist @Blatchford
I graduated from the University of Salford in 2014 and dual practiced until 2018 when I became a full time Prosthetist. I started working as an education and training Prosthetist for Blatchford two years ago which gave me the opportunity to work with hydraulic ankles on an almost daily basis. Hypermobility is often masked in Prosthetics with alignment management but the addition of an articulating ankle often re-presents to us, highlighting the importance of MDT working and the need for physio intervention.
