Did you know that Foot Science International, the creators of Formthotics, is offering three more intensive one-day medical training courses, Entering the FootZone that we provide in New Zealand for medical professionals who are interested in increasing their knowledge of the foot and lower limb, and good treatment options? Make sure to click on the links below to sign up for one of the three dates offered in August, September, and October. 

Simply put, Entering the FootZone provides the essential link between the biomechanical models and patient assessment stages of the process and the all-important prescription stage. A lot of training courses end at the evaluation stage, and you aren’t given the tools to make accurate prescriptions. Entering the Foot Zone aims to create a seamless process from Theory - Assessment - Prescription - Fitting - Review - Evaluation of Results.

This course can act as a refresher for podiatrists or a special interest course for other medical professionals including physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, sports medicine practitioners and orthotists who are interested in the FootZone. Learn new clinical methods with the revised "6 Tests, 6 Steps" a patient centric process of assessment, selection and fitting of Formthotics. Learn when it is best to refer to a podiatrist and what you can help assess.

The goal is to walk away from the course being able to confidently asses your patient's foot and lower limb function and pathology. Rationalise and justify patient treatment with the biomechanics of the feet, including the appropriate prescription of Formthotics orthotics. The course is taught by Sports Podiatrist, Richard Van Plateringen from Dunedin and will include lunch and morning and afternoon tea plus a 5 pair pack of Formthotics and orthotic additions for you to use during the training course and in your practice.

Formthotics also has training courses that are offered in other parts of the world. Check out our event page.
