Updated: 27/10/2020 – CUBRO® OT Ingenuity Awards is now closed. Thank you for all the nominations

What better way to celebrate World OT Day than to recognise and award some of the incredible work OTs have provided. We must say we have enjoyed reading all your CUBRO® OT Ingenuity nominations and we are excited to announce…

The winner of CUBRO® OT Ingenuity is Maree Healey and Lauren Clarke for their innovative approach towards motivating a client to use her powered wheelchair outdoors. In summary, they used the concept of the adventure gameshow ‘Amazing Race’ to engage and motivate her to go outside with a graded approach. A $500 Countdown voucher will be coming your way!

2nd place is Alexandra Jensen who goes above and beyond for her clients even chipping in for rehab activities like gardening and mobile top ups so they can get in touch with her and believes it’s the little things that make all the difference.

3rd place goes to Kate Ferris who showed her dedication to the role while in hospital she taught the whole ward about the reverse Trendelenburg position on the beds so they could all sit up and to speak to one another and eat with ease.

Well done to our CUBRO® OT Ingenuity Winners.
