Plantar Fasciitis And Heel Spurs
From Diane Braggins
Hello Neil, Just a short note to let you know how I am now getting on. For the past 3 years, I have constantly suffered with Chronic “Plantar Facsiitis” and “Heel Spurs” in both of my feet. After watching the “New Inventors” program on the ABC, I saw your machine and happy face. I turned to my husband and said “This is it”. I have nothing more to loose, except my sanity and my life. I was heading down that road very quickly, at considerable speed in wheel chair.
I simply could not stand the pain any longer. I had tried everything, literally. It cost me thousands of dollars but all to no avail or relief of any kind. No Doctors (Specialists) in the State of Queensland could help me. I was constantly crying in pain with every step I would try to take. This was no life; to me it wasn’t worth being here any longer.
I wrote Neil an email that same night after the program had finished. I explained my situation to him. The next morning, I actually received a phone call from Neil, himself. He was calling from Sydney and I was amazed. I couldn’t believe it that he would phone me. I was just blown away that someone would take the time and trouble to do that for me.
After talking to Neil for about half an hour, he assured me that he would be able to help me, so I decided to fly to Sydney to see him, as I live in Brisbane. Well now people, as they say, the rest is history.
Neil, words simply cannot express how I feel now. I can now actually walk and run, for the first time in over 3 years, not to mention that I have no pain in my feet whatsoever. You have given me not only my life back but my feet as well, my sanity and my family. I will be forever indebted to you for the rest of my life as you are my hero and words will never express the gratitude and your kindness for taking the pain away with your fantastic machine that you invented.
I thank you sincerely for saving my life.
PS: Thank god I was not born a “Centipede”.

Neil Smith began his career in orthotics as a trainee Orthotic Laboratory Technician at the age of 16 when the industry was in its infancy. After 10 years in the profession, and manufacturing thousands of Orthotics using many different techniques, he was accepted into university to study Podiatry. While there, he gained a better understanding of human biomechanics and realized that the widely-used prescription method for Orthotics could not be truly accurate unless the patient was assessed – and their stance corrected – while bearing their own weight. Such a system would eliminate the inevitable variations that occur when different technicians execute a Podiatrist’s Orthotic prescription form. Neil knew there must be a better way and was determined to find it. After countless weekends and late nights, the revolutionary The Foot Alignment System was born
An Orthotic works by forcing your foot into its most anatomically aligned position, which also has an affect on your upper body, allowing it to function in an optimum way.
