In many countries we have:
-In Romania we don’t have ‘Pedorthics’.
The question is: do we still have ‘therapeutic footwear (…) the bad and the ugly?’
People who need therapeutic footwear know the answer!
I’m not an artist and I’ll never be one! More than that, David Blackwell’s quote somehow suits me: “I’ve worked in so many areas—I’m sort of a dilettante. Basically, I’m not interested in doing research and I never have been. I’m interested in understanding, which is quite a different thing (…)”. Pedorthics is a very challenging profession as no matter how ‘good’ your product is, some people will not wear it and will not benefit from its therapeutic value because they will consider it unaesthetic or, even worse, ugly! And if the aesthetic sense is not one of yours main attributes then your job is very challenging to be finished. This is why I think I can bring more ‘Art’ in my work based on the designing and developing of the Pedorthic Information Modeling concept.
This is a professional, long-life, personal development project through Pedorthics.
It will not be fast or easy at all, but I believe in this project!
