Formthotics Medical Training Sets These Orthotics Apart

02 June 2017 - posted by Formthotics HQ

You may be considering supplying Formthotics orthotics in your medical practice, but have medical staff who are unfamiliar with the benefits of these orthotics and how they can actually help each patient's feet with comfort, balance, and alignment. A brief training on how to easily shape to a patient's foot and how to determine if additions are necessary to be fitted for the biomechanical alignment of your patient's feet could be a great solution to help your medical staff know how and when to prescribe Formthotics

Our trainings provide an opportunity for medical practitioners to try Formthotics on their own feet and understand how to best fit our line of orthotics with other individuals in the class. "It helps you understand the product in use and its benefits for others. This works really well if you are not confident in prescribing Formthotics for your patients to gain that level of confidence with hands-on practical use." It is a great opportunity for continuing professional development for podiatrists, physiotherapists, general practitioners, chiropractors, osteopaths, occupational health therapists, and sports therapists.

"We were just recently showcasing Formthotics at the Pain to Performance Conference in the United Kingdom. Again everyone loved the product and could see a role for it in there day to day practice, but what amazed them all was the idea of us providing training. It set Formthotics apart from other medical orthotics, " John O'Regan, Trainer for Formthotics in Europe. "It is not just physiotherapists who have large practices, there are many osteopaths and chiropractors as well."

We sell Formthotics in 39 countries and find the best way for people to really understand their benefits is to take a couple of hours to work with these orthotics on their own feet and see just how much of a difference they really make in comfort and performance.  

The feedback that we are receiving from these events is quite positive. Here are a few examples of what you may receive from attending a training from actual feedback forms from trainings held in               New Zealand: Entering the FootZone:
