It is just one example of thehttp://www.guelphmercury.com/news-story/5248645-applied-biomechanics-helps-full-range-of-clients-get-a-step-ahead/ way the team is using technology and their expertise to improve the lives of their clients.
Fred Rayner, a certified orthotist and pedorthist, owns the clinic and heads up the team with his wife, Cathy, who he met while they were students at the University of Guelph. Along with James Christensen and Mark Tonin, they have combined old-fashioned, hands-on services with cutting-edge technology to establish Applied Biomechanics as a leader in the field of custom orthotics.
“Whether you want to call it a calling or not, we are here because we are passionate about applying our knowledge, technology and skills to help the disabled population be the best they can be,” Fred Rayner said. “And now we have carried that over to not only the disabled population but the active and elite population to help them be even better. That’s an exciting new venue for us.”
The 3-D laser scanner provides digital images far superior to traditional plaster casts and foam impressions in a fraction of the time with no mess.
“The big difference with us is that we actually fabricate in-house,” Cathy Rayner said. “Other people may use this technology but they will send it out to a big lab somewhere.”
The team describes Applied Biomechanics as a one-stop shop.
“We are probably the only clinic in Ontario that has the set up we have,” Christensen said. “We’re not the only one with a lab but we are the only one with this technology that has a front-end clinic as well.”
Don’t worry, we won’t let the fame go to our heads! Our thanks go out to Troy Bridgeman and everyone else at The Mercury.
