Footworks owner, Martin Bell, works as an extended scope practitioner for the NHS musculo-skeletal GP service treating hip, knee and foot injuries. He regularly provides specialist training for GP’s, health practitioners and walking groups, related to his area of expertise.
Martin is the grandson of, Sam Bell, a pioneering shoemaker in the 1920’s who patented revolutionary techniques to standardise shoe design and improve shoe manufacture and comfort. Determined also to protect his customers from injury and foot deformity, Sam Bell also taught his customers how to improve their balance and walking in their new shoes.
Recognising the similarity and frequency of walking related injuries seen in both his NHS and private clinics, Martin created ‘Perfectly Poised‘, to teach ladies how to improve their strength, balance and walking posture. He teaches male and female individuals regain the enjoyment of walking and improve their overall posture.
Footworks Orthotics are also the South West clinical partner for Össur, providing specialist bracing for severely damaged or osteo-arthritic knees, allowing individuals to experience a pain free return to walking or their favourite sport.
