One of our United Kingdom Physio Therapists, Gerard Greene has been offering training to Physio therapists throughout Europe in our Formthotics brand for foot orthotics. Gerard began to fit Formthotics to his own patients within his clinic this year because he found they make such a great difference for people in their shoes. We had the priviledge to ask Gerard a few questions about the benefits he is finding fitting his patients with Formthotics.
"I completed my journey and made it to the Cape. A very hilly route getting there.
"Completing my journey has now found me with mixed emotions. Sad, as I'm actually going to miss living on the road and slogging my body everyday and pushing the limits. Sad, because I met so many beautiful people and received so much love and support from all of you. I'm going to miss that. Happy though as I can now rest and look forward to the "What next?""
"This journey has developed my passion to now think of ways how I can use my experience to assist, support and educate our first responders through PTSD and Depression. And so I am seriously looking into setting up a charitable organisation that can achieve these aims. Arohanui ki a koutou katoa whānau. Thank you "
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.
A 5K race - that's 3.1 miles - may sound daunting. But with the right preparation, you can conquer this course in 5-10 weeks of training.
Thats a wrap for another season. I am hugely proud to have pulled out my best result to date with a silver medal at the World Championships Freestyle Ski 2017! Jamie has been an Ambassador on Team Formthotics and is born and raise in New Zealand. He skis with Formthotics in his ski boots and considers this one of his secret weapons in racing.

Hayden Roulston, 2-time Olympian from New Zealand and a Professional Cyclist and Coach has found strong benefits from Formthotics in his cycling shoes. He mentions he like Formthotics foot orthotics because they are heat mouldable and can be adjusted easily. These orthotics have helped Hayden to be comfortable with that contact point that is always in the pedal. "Your feet are critical in cycling and you want to keep your feet healthy and without troubles."
Wiremu Wineera, a seasoned cyclist who has competed in triathlon and ironman races completed a ride of a lifetime earlier this year. He was a part of the USO Bike Ride #USOBluff2Cape from the southern point of New Zealand – Bluff, to the Northern point of New Zealand - Cape Reinga.
