Disordered Mechanics of the Diabetic Foot

Function of the intact and amputated Diabetic foot is objectively changed, creating gait disturbance, vulnerability to wounding, and high rates of wound recurrence. The incidence of wounding closely correlates to mortality, and may be a modifiable statistic dependent on the degree to which (and when) mechanical therapies are introduced to the diabetic population. This presentation offers data, as well as a roadmap for strategic intervention.

Estelle Humphris and Max Martin

Podiatrist and Exercise Physiologist

About us

Estelle is a Podiatrist who had a lack of confidence in gait analysis when she left uni. Her mentors struggled to help her with the advice she was seeking to learn how to break down the mechanics of why certain gait patterns may be occurring. She worked hard to improve her skills and understanding of gait mechanics and wanted to create a resource for others to help them fill in the gaps in knowledge that new grads often struggle with. She created The Gait Movement, an online learning platform providing her courses on gait analysis.

When she met her partner, Max Martin, a very experienced Exercise Physiologist of 20 years, he loved her concept and motives and jumped on board helping to create content. Together, they have adapted some of Max’s movement analysis techniques to create a Framework to guide young clinicians to work through their gait analysis and biomechanical assessment in a methodical and efficient manner.

A Framework to Demystify Gait Analysis and Biomechanical Assessment

Max and Estelle give you a systematic approach to break things down and demystify the complexity of gait analysis and lead it into your biomechanical assessment, creating efficiency in your biomechanical appointments.

If you find gait analysis overwhelming and can’t understand why certain gait patterns are occurring in your clients, this is the presentation for you! If you are a businesses owner or Senior clinician with younger clinicians on your team asking for help analysing gait and you are feeling perplexed how you are going to mentor them in such a broad topic, this is the presentation for you!

If it’s not plantar fasciopathy, then what is it? The differentials you should be considering for plantar heel pain

When it comes to managing plantar heel pain, the majority of cases are plantar fasciopathy. But have you ever thought about what other conditions may be affecting this region of the foot? Chloe-May and Travis will take you through some of the differentials to consider when assessing your patients who present with plantar heel pain.

Maggie Trevillion

Founder – Callen Olive

About me

Over the last ten years, I have been at the forefront of my successful, multi-award-winning podiatry clinic, Walk This Way Podiatry. I must admit it has been a fulfilling and exciting journey.

I believe prevention is the most effective way to enjoy optimum leg and foot health, and having a positive attitude of self-love for our body is paramount to achieving it. This is my philosophy, and I am determined to champion it. So I’m now embarking on a new exciting venture with my new brand, Callen Olive.

Callen Olive brings to the market a new concept of highly effective yet luxurious skincare products for legs and feet. Combining medical podiatry expertise with extensive scientific research and the finest naturally-derived ingredients to target specific leg and foot issues and create formulations that heal, prevent and simply blow your mind away. I believe this is the future of foot care and what the Callen Olive foot care range aims to achieve. It is my intention to position Callen Olive as a market leader in podiatry skincare, making it available to podiatry, beauty and wellbeing clinics, as well as premium cosmetic retailers internationally.

Are we doing enough to treat foot shame?

Foot shame – where do we begin? It is poorly documented / understood, medical research is non-existent and yet we continue to treat this extremely common emotion day in day out.

It adversely drives and changes patients’ behaviour; whereby, they naturally demand, want, and need more from us clinically; in order to meet their expectations and overcome the foot shame / change in their behaviour.

Maggie explores do we need to do more professionally; and questions the demands and evolution of aesthetic / cosmetic podiatry.

David Karamanis


About me

Hi, my name is David Karamanis and I’m an Australian who has a passion for adventure and people. I work as a volunteer podiatrist throughout my journey.

I’m currently living out my vision and traveling throughout South America. My vision is to serve different communities utilising my skills as a podiatrist. My faith journey in Jesus Christ is my motivation to help people and learn more about myself through my vision.

One of my favourite quotes is “lead with your life and not with your words” by Dr Myles Munroe. I value experiences above most and this journey has made me a rich man.

The Traveling Pod – lead with your life

To lead with your life and not with your words, is a lifestyle that I am continuing to choose as I follow my vision.

My vision is to provide podiatry services to communities that cannot easily access it including disability centres, orphanages and jails.

My vision has led me to different communities within the jungle, and exposing me to a different way of living. I’ve been in Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and now Columbia.

My original plan was very different; I’m the guy who initially flew across the world for a girl and she said no. A broken heart became my catalyst to discover what is now my vision.

I will continue to serve my skills throughout South America and then one day the world.

Jayne Timony

Specialist Podiatrist

About me

Jayne is a podiatrist and registered nurse. Originally from Ireland, Jayne worked as a nurse here for some time, before moving to the UK to study a masters in podiatry – a career path which had been a dream of hers for years!

Jayne has worked in both private and NHS as a podiatrist in Sussex, UK. NHS work was predominantly paediatric based where she worked through her competencies and became a paediatric specialist. Private work consisted of general care, biomechanics and msk for adults & children, nail surgery and diabetic foot checks.

While Jayne loved both her private work and NHS work, travel is her other passion. Jayne is currently travelling the world before making her way to Australia to embark on her new pod life there!

The Juvenile Flexible Flat foot type – to treat or not to treat?

The flexible or pes planus foot type gets a lot of attention in the paediatric world, however, we seem to lack a clear consensus on an effective management pathway. Join me to discuss a short synopsis of when we treat this foot type, when we don’t and what we find to be the most effective management pathway for a very common issue in our clinic.

We will cover assessment, symptomatic & asymptomatic, red flags and current management.

Survival of the Friendliest

One of the great strengths of Podiatry is its autonomy but could it also be one our Achilles heel? When we close our clinic door it can leave us isolated, without the support and community needed to help us thrive.

From joining the profession I’ve been struck by just how approachable Pods can be but also by the ad hoc nature of the community. When running course participants often comment on how they feel scared to ask questions or not sure who to ask. Facebook groups and forums have broken down the geographic barriers but not always provided safe spaces for all to engage. How do we change this, what are communities of learning and how do we help support each other to create a stronger profession?

Interested in speaking?

We want to hear from you!
