We are delighted to announce that our very own Bex Yearworth has been named as ‘Technician of the Year’ in a prestigious awards ceremony in Germany.
Huge congratulations to Bex who receiving the 2022 Technician of the Year award, from award sponsors ALGEOS & BAPO Prosthetists and Orthotists at the OTWorld International Trade Show & World Congress in Leipzig, Germany last week.
Bex is the first ever female winner of the award and we are all very proud of her achievement.
One of Bex’s colleagues mentioned: ‘In a male dominated industry, Bex smashes the glass ceiling for women. She has developed the process to produce glow in the dark sockets. Her general enthusiasm, and her appetite to learn and develop is terrific to witness’.
Another colleague said: ‘Bex regularly volunteers her time to a charity called legs4africa, she has also started an Instagram account where she’s always active and raising awareness to the industry. Her goal was to be the best female technician and she sets a high bar for any one to beat, male or female.’
Speaking today, Bex Yearworth, said:
This has really rounded off the craziest two years of my life. Two years ago I was donning PPE and working on a covid ICU ward, an experience that spurred me to make many changes in my life and now I’m Technician of the Year. Thanks to Pace Rehabilitation for the nomination and to all those who have helped me on my way to being a prosthetic technician. I feel truly lucky to get to do this job everyday!
