Walker Orthotics for custom made orthotics
Wuttipong Arayatumsopon, Dirk
Rudolph van der Luebbe and a member of the staff at the clinic.
The Podology Center Ltd. with clinics in Chiang Mai and Bangkok
recently signed a cooperation contract with The Walker Orthotics (also known
as Walker Podiatry) from the Netherlands, who are based in Pattaya.
Professor Rudolph van der Luebbe CEO of The Walker Orthotics stated in a
press conference beside Wuttipong Arayatumsopon, General Manager of The
Podology Center Ltd., that the cooperation will start after the Thai New
Year (Songkran) in this year.
Both told the press that The Podology Center from now on will offer custom
made orthotics on a high quality level in their clinics - where Vinyl,
Leather and Cork are used to stop foot trouble. The Orthotics or Inlays are

comparable to the prices in Europe or the USA. They will even be cheaper
than those offered of some places in Thailand, where the decades old foam

The Walker group and The Podology Center will work with dynamic blue prints,
photographic technology and the modern Podoscope technology to keep any
mistake rate as low as possible. Furthermore does the group guarantee 10
month for the quality of the orthotics. Up to 2 changes, if there would be
trouble with the orthotics are included in the price.
Professor van der Luebbe said, “With our cooperation, people in Bangkok and
in the North of Thailand now can get treated for Plantar Fasciitis, Flat
feet (Pes Planus), High Arch feet (Pes (ex) cavus), Knick foot and spread
foot, Bunion (Hallux Valgus) and even chronic pain. These are the more
common foot problems where Orthotics are used, but much more is possible.”

Ltd., said that the biggest issue for foot health in Thailand is the belief
of the people that the foot is the lowest and most disgusting part of the
“Teenagers who wear Flip Flop shoes, as they are “fashion”, do often not
know, how much they damage their feet with those shoes. Diabetic elderly
have nobody to help them with diabetic foot syndrome and most of the Thai
doctors are fast in amputating toes, feet and legs, when there are still
conservative ways to treat those. In many cases toes, feet and legs could be
preserved,” Dirk noted.
