We are extremely excited to offer this unique and innovative course to Podiatrists across the UK and Ireland. We have a very small number per cohort due to the requirement of individual tuition. We want each and every member on the course to have our undivided attention so they leave feeling confident and energised on this amazing new skillset.

Course Details:

We will be delivering a day of lectures with resident experts from across the world. A delicious Lunch will be provided and an opportunity to test drive any car of your choice (just a little lunch time extra for anyone interested) from Porsche Centre South Lakes who are one of our sponsors for the course. Sunday will see us develop our clinical assessment, rehabilitation, footwear choices for the Richie Brace and vitally, Plaster of Paris casting of the Foot & Ankle. Each individual will create their own cast and a certificate of completion will be provided. We will then follow up the course with a 2 hour Q&A case study zoom session so that we can assist you in implementation of The Richie brace into your individual work spaces.
