    Really I don't understand why Kevin Kirby still continue in 2018 with he's "Foot and Lower Extremity Biomechanics" series (https://www.facebook.com/kevinakirbydpm/posts/1836516416445593) !!
    Do you understand? Or maybe is better for Podiatry Arena to be replaced by 3D Printing Insoles Arena.....;);)

    That sort of nonsense has been going on for years … we still here.

    Thanks for the tip re the book - will buy it.
     
  3. Not going to replace anyone. Be great when printed devices are used by Podiatry in clinic settings as the norm

    Don't people wonder what goes into an app. How do you even know if the device they give you is even the right length. Most podiatrists would at least agree what the correct length should be. Now if anyone could agree on the rest of the prescription variables...... Oh never mind, that is not programmed into the app.

    For $89 you get a $40 off the shelf device with your name printed on it (That's what makes it customized.) And you get to give another company access to all the information on your phone. What a deal. ​
