Health Professional - Ngan Harwood
We’re huge fans of podiatrists, our designer is one! What was it that made you want to be a podiatrist?
I chose to be a podiatrist because it was an unusual career. I didn’t know anyone who did it! I hold the title as the 1st Vietnamese female podiatry graduate in Victoria.
What is your favourite part of being a podiatrist?
Meeting people and being able to help them get back on their feet again. Running is a hobby of mine so I enjoy treating sports related injuries as well.
What are the most common foot problems you see in your female patients?
Pain in feet from ill-fitting shoes are common problems in female patients. These would be corns/calluses or nail pain from tight footwear.
What features of FRANKiE4 do you think could benefit your female patients?
The supportive inner soles with additions to alter the shoes depth is a great feature as it makes it easier for patients to fit orthotics. The wide non-tapered forefoot would benefit most female patients as it replicates the natural shape of the foot.
How did you like your FRANKiE4s?
Loved my ELLiE's! It felt comfortable from the get-go and I managed to walk around the streets of Berlin without any hassles.
In three words describe what FRANKiE4 means to you?
Stylish, comfortable shoes!
