UK PODIATRIST PREDICTS THAT 3-D PRINTERS WILL EVENTUALLY PROVIDE ON-THE-SPOT CUSTOM ORTHOTICS

 

 

PODIATRIST, DAVIS EARLEY STATES, "PIONEERING MEDICAL DEVICES PRODUCED WITH 3-D PRINTERS ARE BEING DEVELOPED USING NORTH EAST EXPERTISE.  A PROJECT INVOLVING NEWCASTLE-BASED PEACOCKS MEDICAL GROUP AND THE UNIVERSITY OF NEWCASTLE HAS WON 77,000 POUNDS FUNDING TO DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE FOOT ORTHOTICS USING REVOLUTIONARY TECHNOLOGY.  THE IDEAL WOULD BE FOR A PATIENT TO ARIVE AT A CLINIC, HAVE THEIR FEET SCANNED, AND THEN USE SOFTWARE TO PRINT THEM A SUITABLE DEVICE ON THE SPOT.  WE ARE SOME WAY OFF, BUT IT'S WHAT WE ARE WORKING TOWARD."

WHEN THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY BECOMES AVAILABLE AND IS FEASIBLE AND ABLE TO MANUFACTURE HIGH QUALITY ORTHOTICS IN HOUSE, YOU CAN BE SURE THAT DR. JOHN A. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC WILL BE ONE OF THE FIRST FOOT CLINICS IN CANADA TO INVEST IN SUCH TECHNOLOGY.  ALWAYS TRYING TO STAY ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE CURVE!

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.

FYI, OUR NEW RENOVATION IS FULLY OPERATIONAL AND EQUIPPED WITH THE LATEST IN PODIATRIC EQUIPMENT AND TECHNOLOGY AND WE HAVE BEEN TREATING PATIENTS IN OUR 2 NEW TREATMENT ROOMS.  THIS MEANS THAT WE NOW HAVE 8 FULL EQUIPPED TREATMENT ROOMS.  

BEFORE MY LOVELY DAUGHTER GRADUATES FROM PODIATRY SCHOOL IN BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA WE WILL ADD ANOTHER 4 TREATMENT ROOMS FOR A TOTAL OF 12 FULLY EQUIPPED TREATMENT ROOMS.  WE EVENTUALLY WANT TO BE FULLY OPERATIONAL 7 DAYS A WEEK WITH 5 OR 6 PODIATRIC SPECIALISTS WORKING AT THE SAME TIME IN ORDER TO PROVIDE TORONTONIANS WITH HIGH QUALITY FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS FROM A NAME YOU CAN TRUST, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
