The textbook “Pedorthics: Foot disorders – foot orthoses – footwear” provides a comprehensive presentation of Pedorthics as it exists today. Three experts from the fields of orthopedics and pedorthics have teamed up for this. With the help of recognised specialists, they created a work which covers all aspects essential to providing pedorthic care of the foot using the most modern techniques and technologies – from the medical basics on the relevant diseases up to and including the individual fabrication of lower limb orthotics.
The book’s clear structure, more than 1,000 color illustrations and comprehensive presentation make it an ideal companion for training and daily practice. It is not merely practitioners and apprentices who will find answers and assistance in providing patients with pedorthic treatment in this book. Anyone involved in the prescription of orthopedic aids or who deals with the problems associated with pedorthic foot care will appreciate the book as an ideal reference. It provides all the essential information on diseases, medical treatment strategies and pedorthic care in concentrated form.
