  • Mark Walbank wins Best Orthotic Free Paper at BAPO

Peacocks Medical Group attended the annual BAPO Conference and Exhibition on 17-19 March.

The well established industry event saw Orthotists and Prosthetists from across the country gather to listen to innovative speakers and industry experts discussing key areas within their specialist field.

Among these speakers were Peacocks very own Scott McNab, Orthotist, providing a presentation on behalf of BAPO and Mark Walbank, Lead Orthotist, who was in the free paper orthotist session.

Mark even went on to win Best Orthotic Free Paper at the conference, after presenting on his experiences in managing Scheuermanns disease in adolescents using the modified Milwaukee CTLSO brace.

Mark said:

“I was completely shocked, yet elated when I was announced as free paper winner at BAPO. For me, the biggest compliment was fellow orthotists from all regions taking the time to congratulate me and ask for my guidance for Scheuermanns patients. This made me feel very humble indeed.”

Peacocks are extremely proud and pleased for Scott and Mark, who both did a fantastic job presenting.
