Media Alert: Foot Levelers Announces Roanoke-Based 3D Technology Division

ROANOKE, VA—September 8, 2017Foot Levelers is growing again with the expansion of its Technology Division at its Roanoke, Virginia-based Headquarters. This expansion will add jobs in engineering, management, and production.

Deborah Beebe, a veteran in high tech product innovation and 3D engineering and printing, will lead the new, expanded division as Foot Levelers CTO (Chief Technology Officer). Ms. Beebe was most recently based in Rock Hill, South Carolina; her résumé touts 11 years as Senior Director of Engineering at 3D Systems.  

The transition begins immediately and is expected to be complete by the end of this year. Foot Levelers’ Technology Division invented such breakthrough innovations as the Foot Levelers 3D BodyView scanner and patient Kiosks.

“We’re bringing the world to Roanoke,” says Kent S. Greenawalt, Foot Levelers President and CEO. “With this incredible wealth of talent, knowledge, and cutting-edge technology under one roof, Foot Levelers is poised to bring unprecedented innovation to healthcare. We’re also backed by 65 years of experience and a growing body of peer-reviewed research. We’re making inroads into safe, drug-free pain management. This could not be more important with the opioid crisis in our country today.”  

Today’s announcement is part of an ongoing story of growth for the 65-year-old company. Started as a small, family business in Dubuque, Iowa in 1952, today Foot Levelers serves thousands of providers and millions of patients in over 85 countries. In 2014, Foot Levelers opened an office in Sydney, Australia, followed by a second in Belgrade, Serbia in 2016. Foot Levelers has long been the leader in orthotics for Chiropractic patients, with an expanding presence in Physical Therapy, Podiatry, Family Medicine, Massage Therapy, and Acupuncture, among other health disciplines.  

 

In September, the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation published a watershed study proving that Foot Levelers custom orthotics, particularly in conjunction with Chiropractic care, significantly reduce Low Back Pain (LBP)—by 40.4 percent. This study is critically important because the National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports 80 percent of adults experience LBP. LBP is the single leading cause of disability worldwide, with many patients taking dangerous opioids for relief. “Foot Levelers and Chiropractic can make a difference in the opioid crisis,” Greenawalt adds.

5 Reasons to Choose Custom Orthotics for the Treatment of Low Back Pain

1. The feet are the body’s foundation. Just like a building, fixing problems in the foundation can help with problems throughout the structure.

“…I have to load 5,000 pigs every 4 months. This entails many hours of walking on cement alleyways. I couldn’t help load without my Foot Levelers!” –Farmer Donita Koberg Platz of Minnesota

2. “Bad” feet are linked to bad backs—the research proves it. Fixing bad feet can make a huge difference in the treatment of low back pain.

3. Your feet may feel just fine—but they could be causing problems up above. Foot imbalance or dysfunction is often “silent,” but it can have ripple effects, transferring problems (and pain) to the low back.

4. Your feet are as unique as your fingerprints; your orthotics should be too. Only custom orthotics can account for differences between your right and left foot, and can include accommodations for your specific feet, body and low back pain.

5. Custom orthotics are built just for you based on a highly detailed 3D scan of your feet. Performed by a skilled health professional, the scan is sent to Foot Levelers’ team of trained design technicians, who in turn create your 100% unique, tailored product.

Don’t be fooled by the over-the-counter junk; these mass-produced, generic insoles can actually worsen your pain over time. Most cases of low back pain respond to conservative care like Chiropractic adjustments plus custom-made orthotics; no need for dangerous surgery or addictive drugs. 

For lasting pain relief, improved biomechanics and health benefits that radiate throughout the body, choose custom orthotic support. Your feet, and your body, will thank you.
