Airedale patients can walk in style with new orthotic shoe designs
10:00am Monday 12th May 2014 in News
Patients at Airedale Hospital have helped develop two new shoes for people with foot problems.
Users of the hospital’s orthotic service were asked for their input into designing the footwear with specialist manufacturer Peacocks Medical Group.
During a session at the hospital’s education centre in December they gave their views on existing footwear and suggested areas of improvement in the designs.
Now two new styles have been produced – a light pink court shoe, with a lace fastening and a two-tone brogue made of black calf leather and grey suede.
The user group, known as the Airedale Footwear Forum, is seeking a suitable name for the new shoes. Any name suggestions can be tweeted to the group @ANHST #Peacocks.
