Elaine Figgins

It is with sadness that I have to tell you of the passing away, after a long battle with cancer, of Elaine Figgins an Orthotist based in Glasgow. 

Elaine was very interested in TAG, and the condition, and the people with AMC. She was a lovely lady and very kind and helpful to our members, always willing to answer queries from people all over the country. Elaine also attended (and spoke0 at several events and conferences.

She trained as an orthotist and was a senior lecturer and subsequently head of department at the National Centre for Prosthetics and Orthotics at Strathclyde University, before moving to NHS Education for Scotland.

She developed an interest in Arthrogryposis whilst at Strathclyde and worked closely with TAG in the 1990s. It was through her influence and interest that we started the Arthrogryposis clinic in Glasgow and she was assiduous in attending before her diagnosis.
