There are many factors that contribute to a person’s risk of falling. Not the least of which is footwear. Inappropriate and ill-fitting footwear can lead to falls which may result in injury. This is particularly so with the elderly and with people that have diseases such as diabetes and arthritis.
Are you or someone you know at risk?
Did you know that there is an ideal shoe to minimise falls risk?
April is Falls Prevention Month and this is the ideal time to visit a Pedorthist to have your feet, shoes and falls risk checked by members of the Pedorthic profession. Pedorthists have received extensive training in footwear fitting, footwear modification and new custom shoe construction, if required. To find a Certified Pedorthist near you please click here.
