Over the weekend we attended the CMT (Charcot Marie-Tooth) National Seminar which was a great opportunity to meet and speak with individuals who have, or know of someone with CMT. ⠀
As a degenerative nerve disease that affects a range of functions, we treat a number of patients who experience Foot Drop, a condition where damage to the nervous system causes an inability to lift your foot whilst walking.⠀
We had individuals on the day trying different devices and speaking to our team about the various options available to them. For more information on our services, book an appointment at one of our national clinics on 1300 866 275

The UK can’t get enough of our first educator who is now very much a part of the TPE family – we’re thrilled to have @don_lanning coming from the USA to share his vast knowledge at #TPE2019 !
Don grew up in the heart of Hollywood's creature effects community and is one of the industry’s best known and most successful sculptors, producing work from conservative realism to the archetypes of horror, fantasy and science fiction.
His sculptures have been featured in countless movies, with recent work including ‘Lost in Space’, ‘Star Trek Beyond’, ‘Into the Woods’. ‘Batman vs. Superman’, ‘Oblivion’, ‘After Earth', ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’, ‘The Avengers’, ‘Dark Shadows’, ‘Battleship’, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides’, ‘Green Lantern’, ‘H2: Halloween 2’, ‘Quarantine’, ‘Star Trek’, ‘The Santa Clause 3’, ‘Superman Returns’, ‘Silent Hill’, ‘Underworld 2’, ‘Fantastic Four’, '‘Blade 3’, ‘Alien vs. Predator’ and ‘Hellboy’ to name only a few.
Look out for our schedules near the event to find out where to see Don on November 23rd, and enjoy this image selection from his huge body of work, which shows sculptures for many different companies and productions including the likes of Joel Harlow, ADI and Spectral Motion.

The importance of family.
10-year-old Sebastien poses with his extended family, who took him in after the 2010 Haiti earthquake, in which he lost his mother as well as his leg. #CBMAustralia #DisabilityInclusion
Sebastien, 10, stands in the centre of a family portrait. He’s on crutches and wears shorts making his prosthetic leg visible. Two young family members stand next to him plus his aunt and uncle. They pose on a waterfront that is strewn with rubbish and in the background is a shipping yard.

MaCauley Wanner and Ryan Palibroda's design studio, @alleles, began as an unorthodox college thesis project. It is now a premier boutique where amputees can be fitted for fashionable limb covers that make their prosthetic limbs stylish and eye-catching. These designers hope their fashions will help reduce the stigma that comes with prosthetics.
Typically, prosthetic limbs are designed to be skin-toned, to blend in and be invisible. Ironically, the bold, attention-grabbing covers from the Alleles team allow people to see more of the person behind the disability. Freethink spoke to the design duo to understand the motivation behind their prosthetic designs. -

🎃 witchy woman foam latex practice on the cutest @makeupbymelissuh - this look took a while but it was SO worth it. Aka @ebaperformancemakeup endura airbrush paints are literally my world and I would die for them. Thank you to the @makeupdesignory for this opportunity, you the best 🧡
Absolutely stoked that last week I finished my first definitive prosthesis for a real patient! I met them just after their amputation, and on my last day of placement they walked out on this leg, happy and ready to face the world on two feet again. So proud to be in O&P #prosthetics#kx06#rushrogue
Chemical peel anyone? 💢 *WARNING: this is NOT a real injury, this IS only makeup)
Spooky season is upon us! This is my interpretation of a chemical burn. It was my very first time doing this type of FX makeup. As an esthetician in training I thought it would be a fun idea to kind of play and incorporate my profession. This is definitely NOT what you would want to happen on a client! Again, this is only makeup. Let me know what you think! 🎃

Escape from Area 51 👽
So little fact about me, I love doing special fx so here's my first shot at a gory alien 🛸
One of our @plasteredprofessionals , @eddyo16 , got to attend NYU’s Pediatric Gait Analysis and Orthotic Management Conference, with the O&P LEGEND, Elaine Owen. The weekend went over gait principles and ways of “tuning” AFOs for better ambulation for our patients. Also in attendance were PTs, CPOs and, to our surprise, fellow BCM alumni from the Class of 2018 and 2017. Thank you Elaine Owen and NYU for a great conference! So many new methods to use in practice.
Her name is poetry. Her life is verse. Her heart is cadence and her spirit unending. “I think it is in grief that we need some reminder of our humanity--and sometimes, someone to say it for us. Poetry steps in at those moments when ordinary words fail: poetry as ceremony, as closure to what cannot be closed.”
