Health Professional - Elise Facey
We’re huge fans of podiatrists, our designer is one! What was it that made you want to be a podiatrist?
From a young age I had been to a Podiatrist myself as a patient and had always thought they only made orthotics! As I grew up, did work placement and researched further what podiatrist “actually do” I became amazed at how broad the scope of practice actually was. From then on I knew Podiatry was for me! There is never a dull day as a Podiatrist!
What is your favourite part of being a podiatrist?
My favourite part would have to be wound care; my primary job is working within a High Risk Foot Clinic. I also enjoy making orthotics, offloading and being able to provide specialised Podiatry care to North East Victoria.
What are the most common foot problems you see in your female patients?
As mentioned the majority of my work deals with wound care, and often females (of any age, not just elderly) can develop wounds and ulcers from poorly fitting footwear.
What features of FRANKiE4 do you think could benefit your female patients?
The removable foot bed allows plenty of room for orthotics, particularly custom orthotics as many of my patients require. There is also plenty of room at the forefoot as to not squish up the toes and fastening mechanisms such as laces allow a great fit for all patients.
How did you like your FRANKiE4s?
I have two pairs of NAT’s and absolutely love them! Immediate comfort and stylish enough for work and causal for weekend wear.
In three words describe what FRANKiE4 means to you?
Stylish, immediate comfort
