Do you know a Technician who goes that extra mile? Someone who makes sure their patient’s device is suitable for their activities or has a great understanding of what their patient needs. Maybe it’s a Technician who has overcome barriers to allow them to carry out their duties, or Technicians who consistently produce excellent and innovative devices? Well now is your chance to give them something back by nominating them for the Algeos Technician of the Year Award.

The Technician can be nominated by anyone, be it their manager, a clinician, a fellow Technician, or a patient or user. Three winners will share a prize fund of £1000 and each will receive free registration to the technical clinical programme at the Conference on Friday 17 March 2017.

Orthotic Technology Forum 2014 – Netherlands

Orthotics Technology Forum 2014 – The Netherlands

We are happy to announce that the 2014 European Orthotics Technology Forum (OTF) will take place in Eindhoven, The Netherlands at the Evoluon Centre on 18th September.

This event is focussed on existing and emerging technologies related to the orthotic insoles industry. Previous events attracted over 100 attendees from 13 different countries worldwide.

This year’s European event is being run alongside The Dutch Society of Podiatry (NVvP) Annual Congress which is an event for high level clinical discussion being held on 19th September. By bringing the two events together on consecutive days in the same venue, delegates have the unique opportunity to attend two days of presentations, discussions and hands on workshops covering both clinical and technological topics. See more about the NVvP conference.

Our guest speakers are leading the way in developing and using different types of technology, from hardware devices to help measure biomechanical features, pressure and anatomical form, CADCAM tools for plasterless manufacture, as well as new ideas for increasing productivity and reducing manufacturing costs.

As with past events we are expecting speakers and attendees to travel from around the world making this a unique global experience.

Baby J hospital admits errors

A Jewish woman has complained about a series of blunders by hospital staff after she was forced to give birth in squalor.

Bethlehem NHS Trust apologised after the heavily pregnant woman was sent to an “overflow maternity unit” because all the hospital beds were occupied.

The trust issued an apology acknowledging that the temporary unit attached to a local pub was “totally unsuitable”.

The woman, identified only as “Mary”, said: “It was unbelievable. After waiting hours for an ambulance that never came, my husband had to take me himself on a donkey. When we arrived the staff said there was no room and that I would have to make do with one of the outbuildings, which was dirty and cold. I didn’t even get proper bedding.”

Shortly after giving birth, Mary was subjected to a further ordeal when three bearded strangers turned up bearing gifts for her newborn son and demanding to “adore” him.

“They said they were kings, they were strangely dressed and one of them smelt strongly of frankincense. It was terrifying. When they were joined by a group of local farm workers it was the last straw,” Mary said.

Three males of oriental appearance and several shepherds were later taken into custody by police. The hospital said it had launched an urgent review of security.

Meanwhile, wider questions have been raised about standards of care at Bethlehem after leaked reports of higher than average mortality rates at the maternity unit.

Hospital chief executive Graham Herod-King is under pressure to resign following allegations that he tried to cover up the problem.

Just days earlier a hospital inspection concluded that Herod-King’s management was “exemplary”. CQC inspectors praised the chief executive, calling him a “slightly cruel but very effective leader”.

Staff at Bethlehem maintain that the hospital has been unfairly singled out for criticism and question Mary’s version of events. One nurse hinted at mental health problems.

“Her story doesn’t ring true,” she said. “For a start, Mary claims that she was still a virgin at the time of the birth and we can’t find any medical records for her or her husband. She also upset some of the other mums by bragging that she had given birth to the Son of God and insisting that they bow down before him.

“We always get people like this turning up at our busiest times. It’s the same every Christmas.”

A merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all at orthotictechnicians.com
