Gordon JackmanGordon is currently CEO of the Duncan Foundation which supports people living with neuromuscular conditions, including the Late Effects of Polio. Gordon contracted polio aged 10 months, resulting in partial paralysis in his legs, wearing callipers in childhood and now carbon fibre DBS braces. Gordon has been a teacher, environmental consultant and archaeologist prior to his current role. He became aware of Post-Polio Syndrome issues in the 1990s, taking a great interest in the literature and strategies for minimising the Late Effects of Polio. He learnt how to design and make his own orthotic shoes which served him well prior to getting his current braces. His passions include improving services to people living with the late effects of polio and any other neuromuscular condition, especially orthotic services.
