The goal is not to be the
world's best kept secret!

Many clients come to our facility saying we are the world’s best kept secret!  With the aim of changing this we are walking with you at Happy Feet Pedorthics to share our stories, your stories.
 
Thanks for the feedback from our February Newsletter. One colleague wrote “Hello to the wonderful grandmother. “Happy Feet Pedorthics” newsletter is full of important info. Wonderfully written, it is clear and concise for all dummies like me to read and understand. …Way to go. Yeah. I expect a newsletter every now and then to see what you’re up too…Well done Clare and team.”
 
With the help of our IT support team and Virtual Assistant you can now: On the floor at our Pedorthic Facility and our Regional Clinics, our role as pedorthists is to assess and fit clients for medical footwear with the goal of improved health outcomes and happy feet! After a tumultuous 2014 and now, with our new team members Sarah and Suzanne walking with us, we are about caught up and managing the day-to-day of our service a lot better for you our clients and referrers. Working on the floor is where the fun is! This is where we meet the client, this is where we aim to make a difference! As a client said recently “You have a marvellous job, fitting people with the right shoes to help them walk better, to have Happy Feet.”

I’d feel like I had died and gone to heaven if I can get some shoes to fit me!
 
Fionnuala came to Happy Feet Pedorthics in search of footwear. Her right ankle is fusing naturally with arthritis. By choice she does not drive a car as she cycles everywhere! At Happy Feet Pedorthics Fionnuala is easy to fit - runner, strap court, enclosed winter shoes, and a boot – no problems – all extra
width and depth accommodating her AFO - Ankle Foot Orthoses.

There is one trick for Happy Feet Pedorthics to sort with Fionnuala though – the Leg Length Difference (LLD) raise and the heel raise. Prior to coming to Happy Feet Pedorthics Fionnuala was not comfy and not feeling in balance as she was walking or standing.

The pictures tell the beginning story. We have made the LLD raise and heel raise, tested it and bonded the sole. Fionnuala has been off on a holiday, and begun a new job. She has been back to see her orthotist, who has made some suggestions for an ankle strap on the AFO and for a walking heel. Fionnuala is due to see us shortly regarding the suggested modifications and a 2nd pair of shoes. Watch for the update!

“My good wife Kopi took her now happy feet off to work this morning…”
 

Kopi came to Happy Feet Pedorthics with sore feet because of …

Next day Happy Feet Pedorthics received an email: "I have to advise you that my good wife Kopi took her now happy feet off to work this morning and is well pleased with her Finn Comfort and Drew product purchases and the great customer service experience with Frank during yesterday’s consultation".
