Celebrating Pedorthics at
Happy Feet Pedorthics

Our registered business name is Crispin Cobblings. Crispin or Crispian legend has it as, the patron saint of shoemaking and Cobblings from the art cobbling. In the beginning we traded simply as Crispin Cobblings. Along the way then it was Crispin Cobblings trading as Extra Depth Footwear-North West. The story evolved to Extra Depth Footwear @ Happy Feet Pedorthics and now 2015 the story is all about Happy Feet Pedorthics!

We are celebrating Pedorthics at Happy Feet Pedorthics!

Our service is centred on our clients, and our referrers.
  • We manage our opening times, clinic dates, professional development days, client files, purchasing routines and the making of shoes, orthotics, repairs and modifications to provide our best service in the timeliest manner for our clients.
  • This said, at times things can go astray, and when this happens I thank you for your patience. Be assured the team at Happy Feet is working with you.
If you need assistance please speak to one of our team members
 
At Happy Feet Pedorthics our pre-fabricated medical footwear range is broad for the range of our clients’ needs.
  • Our range includes shoes from Drew, Durea, PW Minor, DB, Finn, Adour, Gadean, Piedro, Propet and Surefit.
  • We continue to work with our suppliers to order and receive client orders in a timely manner.
  • We are always on the lookout for “new” products to meet further client needs.

At Happy Feet Pedorthics our repair and modification service continues to grow along with our orthotic range.
  • Pedorthic modifications and repairs are usually completed within a week and if urgent can be done in less time
  • We make accommodative orthotics, at times with very simple corrective elements, to primarily support and cushion the foot.
  • We also make sensomotoric® orthoses - orthotic devices which utilise the proprioceptive system in the body. This orthotic concept was first published by Lothar Jahrling in Germany. At Happy Feet Pedorthics we work with Karl Schott from Footpower to bring this device to our clients.
At Happy Feet Pedorthics we do fit podiatry devices into our shoes. However as we are not podiatrists we do not make corrective orthotics. We regularly refer to podiatrists for diagnosis and podiatry treatment.
 
Pedorthics is a most exciting field to work in. As pedorthists we know that we make a difference to people attending to daily tasks, living and celebrating their lives.  Every day, we have the privilege of listening to stories of how our work here at Happy Feet Pedorthics, leads to our clients having less pain, more safety, more mobility and more comfort in shoes people are happy to wear.

Opening Times, Clinic Dates and Home Visits for 2015
 
At our Moonee Ponds facility our opening hours are 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and one Saturday per month by appointment only. Appointments are preferred. This said:
  • We welcome our clients talking with us to negotiate an appointment time suitable for all.
    • In the past we have seen clients at 7am in the morning, 6.30 in the evening, and in exceptional circumstances on a Sunday.
  • Clients who make appointments are given preference, as we manage ‘walk ins’:
    • In the event that it is difficult to forward plan an appointment, consider ringing on the day or before you leave home, to check that a pedorthist is available to assist you.
    • When we are attending regional clinics and professional development days there are no pedorthists available for a client assessment and fitting. 
Pedorthists work as part of the Allied Health Team. We request some personal details and health background information as we complete an assessment and fitting and make our recommendation for pedorthic footwear. Given the time required, we recommend that clients regard an appointment with a pedorthist in a similar vein to seeing a doctor or other Allied Health Professional.
 
There is considerable time given to the preparation and travelling to regional clinics. Appointments are essential at regional clinics and are made through our Moonee Ponds facility. Having travelled the distance we see as many people as possible because it is a while before we are back again!
 
At Happy Feet Pedorthics we provide a Home Visit service. The preparation is critical to an effective home visit. Prior to the home visit Happy Feet Pedorthics requires:
  • Completion and return of the home visit form to Happy Feet Pedorthics.
  • Provision of photographs – taken straight on from the front, back and each side to show the foot, ankle and to below the knee.
  • Payment of the home visit fee.
  • Negotiation of an appointment time.
At Happy Feet Pedorthics our aim is to attend each home visit equipped with a range of footwear for use in assessment and fitting of shoe, and then following up with posting the footwear to save another home visit. This saves time for all and cost for the client.
 
At our Moonee Ponds facility we have off street parking immediately outside our door. A refreshing glass of water and a bathroom is available on site.
