Do little feet with little problems turn into bigger feet with bigger problems?
Foot development and posture concerns can be source of worry for parents/carers and are often frequent reasons for people to seek professional advice. As health professionals we understand there are lots of gaps within the existing evidence which may hinder our abilities to intervene or quell parent/career concerns with any certainty. As the brainchild of Hayley Uden and Helen Banwell, Making Strides aims to bring together researchers working in this field to encourage collaboration, with the hope of streamlining how and what we investigate – ultimately allowing us to make strides in our knowledge and management of the developing foot and leg.
Making Strides aims to provide a platform for i) dissemination of research into the developing foot and leg, ii) a supportive peer base of researchers at all levels of experience, and iii) showcasing future research projects and collaboration opportunities. As a one stop shop for all things foot and leg development related, Making Strides membership is free and open to those that have an affiliation with UniSA or its staff (e.g. staff, students, adjuncts, co-authors etc.). Interested parties are encouraged to contact Helen Banwell or Hayley Uden directly.
