I liked the way the course was formatted and presented online.
I have taken a couple of other orthotic/foot biomechanics courses in my ten years of practice. However, I got quite a bit of new knowledge from the BioPods course, all of which made sense to me. I liked the quizzes at the end of each lesson, well because I am a nerd. Haha! One thing I wanted to say is that I appreciated the small corner window that shows the speaker. That helped me stay more engaged in what they were saying because I could see them. I have taken a lot of online CEU courses that just show the presentation, and I start to lose interest once I have read the contents of the slide. Seeing the speaker helped me to take the information in just like you would get in a real classroom, which is a better way for me to learn personally.
I was introduced to BioPods last summer shortly after I started to question whether I wanted to use orthotics for patients any longer. I was also personally having some adverse reactions to my orthotics that had previously helped with shin splints. As a result of my experiences over the years, I began to feel that orthotics were not the answer. I was starting to tinker with an idea of developing my own proprioceptive insole until I found BioPods.
After trying BioPods in my footwear, I’m now prescribing them to my patients.
