Foot Levelers

Leading Provider of Custom Orthotics

Category: Philanthropy

Giving Back to Our City Schools

Foot Levelers is more than “just” custom orthotics; we’re a technology company, too. Most of the doctors we work with use our proprietary 3D scanning technology to capture images of patients’ feet; these images are instantaneously sent through the magical interwebs to our lab in Roanoke, Virginia. These are the “blueprints” for building patients’ custom orthotics.

Many of those 3D scanning systems include a laptop pre-loaded with our scanning software to help run the machine. When doctors upgrade or switch their systems, sometimes those laptops are no longer needed, so they are returned to us. read more

We’re pleased to report that we’ve finished building his pair of custom orthotics and they’ve already made their way across the pond to Drs. Bloom and Greenfield at Stanmore Chiropractic Clinic outside of London, England. Rory and his family will come back to the clinic soon to pick up his new orthotics and make sure they’re just right (they live several hours away), and we’ll keep you posted when they do!

Here’s Tammy on our team holding Rory’s new custom orthotics before we shipped them out. read more

Rory’s Story (and The Case of the Missing Orthotic)

Rory

The most rewarding part of working for Foot Levelers? Helping patients–no question.

And Rory’s story is one of our favorites.

Earlier this month, our gal Tammy, who works in our Sales & Service Department, read about the plight of an adorable little guy all the way across the pond in Lancashire, England. Six-year-old Rory was born four months premature, leaving him with sensory, physical, and neurological issues. He’s unable to walk, but with ongoing therapy his parents hope that one day he will. read more

America’s Toughest Road Marathon just keeps getting bigger, with 2,507 registered runners–an 11% increase over last year; 600 volunteers, a brand new (official) double marathon, 10 non-profit race beneficiaries, plus runners hailing from 43 states and nine countries.

Even though warnings of severe weather forced organizers to cancel the event about five hours in, reviews were glowing (thanks, folks!).

Runner Elizabeth R. Bain of California said this about the race in The Roanoke Times: “What really made this course shine (besides the gorgeous views from the tops of the mountains)? YOU, Roanoke! From the volunteers handing out bibs and shirts at packet pick-up, to the mimosa ‘aid station,’ to the guy driving the bus where I took my DNF [did not finish], everyone was so kind and friendly! Even though I’m a slow, back-of-the-pack runner, every aid station had cheers and cowbells and plenty of aid station supplies for me.” read more
