Simple hello

    Just posting a quick hello and hope :drinksto gain new ideas as well as share them. Back in May, I have attended the 2008 Leipzig World Congress for the third time and this time I was invited to speak as well. My topic, "Wirkung von Struempfen mit Silikon- Gel-Futter." That's Effect of special socks with silicon gel lining," in English. It was a discussion about patients I have implented the silicon socks in treating and preventing their ulcerations due to peak plantar pressures that is prevalent in diabetics. It was fun to come back from a conference with
    more money in your pocket than before and also was an honor to be able to share my little knowledge with an international community. Well, I better go. Looking forward to visiting this site often. Good night

    Hi welcome, I have used silicone socks a little, I would love to read your presentation if you could send it? I also need to know how to come back with more money in my pockets after a conference. Congratulations. We look forward to your input

    Hi Dr Brooks, :D


    Is this the conference you attended?


    I agree with Heather & Erica, it would be very informative if you could share some of your insights RE: prevention of foot ulceration. The Diabetes forum on this site is a wonderful way of sharing news & research on ulcer prevention.

    PS. This site also has a translation facility so if any of the articles of interest aren't in someones 'native' language it can still be understood by everyone.

  5. Yes, it is, Twirly. Were you there? I am also a member of the St Louis Chapter American Council on Germany and this Tuesday coming up they are having one of their intelliectual discussion and dinner. This weekend I am printing out pictures I have taken of Dresden which I also visited while in Leipzig. I was especially in awe of the Frauenkirche and cannnot wait to share these with fellow ACG members Tuesday evening.
    I am also a member of ISPO and in 2010 ISPO and OT will be cosponsors. I cannot wait and am already thinking of another topic to present when OT starts its calls for papers. Will you be there? Maybe we can meet up one day. Bye.

    Hi once again Dr Brooks,

    Unfortunately I will be based in sunny South Yorkshire, England this coming weekend but I would be in your debt if you could post any pictures & correspondance on the Arena for us all to enjoy, learn from & hopefully participate in educated debate.

    Your input is greatly appreciated. If you consider to post in the main forum you will find many will not only read but also respond to any input or questions you may forward.

    Podiatry Arenas members are across the globe (members map) but we all love the opportunity to consider & appreciate (& respond to) the opinions of others in our field.

    I look forward to your future postings.

  7. To Heather Bassett, to get more money, you simply respond to calls for papers. If you are selected, they give you a date and time and then you get paid for your lecture. They paid me in Euros. FINALLY the weak dollar was to my advantage when I came back to the states. As for the lecture itself, I have it all in German but if I can upload it properly I hope you will be able to view it and maybe someone can translate it for you. I'm not sure how to do that from here (Podiatry arena) but hopefully I can figure it out. Wish me luck! Bye
  8. Dear Guys, tried to upload the power point presentation as it was presented in Leipzig but it seemed to have gotten caught up in a loop or something. Contacted webmasters to see if they can suggest something. Hope they can help. Until then, bye and have a good, fun-filled weekend.
