Bruce Williams, D.P.M., is vigilant about offering his patients the best foot care. When people routinely wear the wrong shoes, walk improperly or suffer from diabetic ulcerations, their feet take a beating. As the owner of his own podiatry practice, Dr. Williams’ goal is to defeat that pain in record time.
Using Amfit’s Orthotic Fabrication System has enabled Dr. Williams to gain more control over the complex orthotic prescriptions.
“You can truly modify the device right on the screen, with or without the patient present,” he says. “I know that it will come out exactly as I have designed it, so there is no possibility of lab personnel either not understanding my semantics or even just plain making a mistake.”
Because Amfit technology allows Dr. Williams to manufacture his orthotics in-house, he’s able to offer his patients extremely quick turnaround times – the same day, if needed. The Amfit Orthotic Fabrication System has also helped Dr. Williams to boost profits. Using this technology has reduced his orthotics’ costs by 60 to 70 percent. It’s also enabled him to capture revenue from secondary sales of orthotic foot beds for sandals and dress shoes.
“We seek to provide a comfortable, fully functional device that relieves a patient’s pain in record time,” Dr. Williams says. “Amfit technology has given me incredible control over the orthotic prescription. There’s no limit to what I can do to modify my devices; I am limited only by my imagination.”
Dr. Williams is the owner of Breakthrough Podiatry in Merrillville, Indiana and serves on the board of directors of the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine (AAPSM).
