Our founding directors, Greg Dower and Darren Stewart, are uniquely qualified in Australia with a dual certification in both podiatry and pedorthics. Along with some of the finest pedorthists, podiatrists, orthotists and orthopaedic boot makers from around the world, our team at My FootDr has the experience and skills required for any custom footwear project.
We can accommodate any footwear requirement, from custom-made medical grade footwear for patients to elegant and stylish custom-made fashion shoes, orthopaedic or even fashion sandals with orthotic support. The sky is the limit!
Some of our footwear modifications include full sole buildups, heel raises, relasting, shoe stretching, medial and lateral flares and buttressing, offloading poron-filled apertures, carbon fibre stiffening, cricket and golf shoe spiking, sports shoe adjustments and every type of rocker sole imaginable.
We can custom make medical grade footwear for diabetic Charcot’s feet and we make individual lasts for our customers and patients. Sometimes we can save our customers money by modifying an existing extra-depth medical grade shoe.
Some of our patients include members of the Australian cricket team, the Queensland Bulls, the Brisbane Heat, overseas dignitaries, patients with diabetic ulcers and customers who need orthopaedic footwear but want them to look like regular fashion shoes.
We have many children as customers and patients of our pedorthic clinics with gait disorders from cerebral palsy and about neurological disorders. We also treat a lot of patients with severe orthopaedic deformities and fractures of the foot and lower limbs that require special modifications to their footwear such as heel build-ups, and even full custom made boots.
We can serve all Podiatry and orthopaedic clinics and have a close relationship with some of Australia’s finest rheumatologists, physiotherapists, endocrinologists, surgeons and rehabilitation specialists.
Our staff onsite prosthetic and orthotist laboratory enables us to provide expert service to amputees requiring footwear modifications and new footwear from scratch.
We are very pleased to accept referrals from any practitioner and can access private health insurance, MASS, Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Team Care Arrangement, National Disability Scheme and other third-party funding.
