    My name is David Ber from Canadian Orthotics International. I have been working at Canadian Orthotics for more then Ten years (well actually since I was 6 years old). I am not a Podiatrist, but my father Dr. Samuel Ber is. After 30 years he has has corrected over 1,000,000 feet. I have learned every station from pouring casts, correction, grinding, posting, and accommodating. My father is definately my mentor. In 1999 he decided to move towards "digital". I helped employ the Sharp Shape scanning system, (which is wonderful), learned virtual plaster correction, and of course help maintain the C&C machine. I currently maintain communication and even consult many foot care professionals including some of the top Podiatrists in North America. I would love to expand to the rest of the world and reach out to the UK, Europe, and Australia.

    If you are interested in dealing with an experienced Canadian Laboratory, please let me know.

    I don't believe in matt scans as a form of taking a cast. I only believe in semi-weight baring, or non-weight baring plaster, STS, foam impression, or laser scanning (depending upon what model).

    It's been a long time, and I would love to join this community.

    Any questions,

    Please feel free to contact me.

    Hi Dave, again welcome to Podiatry Arena. Good of you to offer to share your expertise.
    (Sometimes may need to be mindful of the difference between advertising and sharing..eek,oops,sorry)
    You obviously are passionate about your work and experiences, so that is always good to have here on Arena. :--))
    I look forward to you sharing with us. :--))
    Would love to get to Canada one day. Missed out due to injuries in 1986, was in States having knee surgery, instead of going to Canada!
    One Day!!

    Yeah we recently displayed at the APMA in Toronto. I have never participated in a conference as big as that before. There is a lot of competition in the states.
