They've got attained a considerable following which continues growing. PodChatLive can be considered one of several techniques that podiatrists are able to get free professional development points.

One of many livestreams that was popular was a discussion with two foot orthotic lab owners regarding the business and just how they connect to the podiatry professions. Foot orthotics facilities are in the business of manufacturing custom made foot orthotics which Podiatry practitioners make use of for the patients. The lab proprietors in that episode were Artur Maliszewski (from the Footwork Podiatric Laboratory in Melbourne, Australia) and Martin McGeough (from Firefly Orthoses in Ireland). They talked about what life is like in the orthoses facilities. They talked briefly on how they personally made the journey from being Podiatry practitioners to laboratory proprietors and other themes like their labs participation in research. There was also a valuable conversation about the preferences of their customers with regards to negative impression capture techniques such as the plaster of paris compared to laser scanning. Also of concern was the number of people even now wish to use the infamous “lab discretion” box on orthoses forms.
