Vasyli Australia receives APA endorsement
After many months of independent evaluation, the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) formally announced its decision to offer their exclusive endorsement for Orthotic therapy products to Vasyli Medical. The award was presented by the APA's CEO David Malone and received on behalf of Vasyli Australia by CEO Chris Gallagher.
It is with great pride and pleasure that Vasyli accepts this endorsement from the APA.
Chris Gallagher made an announcement of his own at the meeting, confirming that Vasyli Australia has taken the Gold Sponsor opportunity for the Muscular Skeletal Specialty Group at the 2007 APA Conference in Australia in October.
Vasyli is extremely proud to have been awarded the status of the only orthotic product supplier to receive the APA's endorsement. The product range, ease of use and level of both patient and practitioner satisfaction were just some of the criteria's on which the products were evaluated.
Vasyli's commitment to the field of orthotic therapy and lower limb biomechanics goes beyond its product development. Education and the process of information exchange has always been a focus at Vasyli. We have always taken pride in being innovators, not imitators. This philosophy has led to the establishment of the Vasyli Think Tank(tm), a group of internationally renowned practitioners who have come together to share their clinical knowledge and lower limb biomechanics expertise.
All this is designed to bring to medical practitioners the very latest in pre-configured Orthotic therapies. Biographies on the Vasyli Think TankT members are available on this website.
Vasyli introduces the Vasyli McConnell range
Vasyli Think Tank Members Phillip Vasyli and Jenny McConnell have combined their many years of expertise to develop the new signature Vasyli McConnell range of orthotics. Initially focusing on product for women's shoes, two "slimfit" devices will be available from early 2008.
As many therapists and women know fitting a traditional orthotic in a women's heel or dress shoe is normally difficult to say the least. The new Vasyli McConnell devices will be designed to fit in nearly any type of women's heel or fashion shoe, providing support and alignment in the midfoot and under the metatarsal heads.
Please feel free to contact us for more information or to arrange to see a sample in your facility soon.
Vasyli Medical launches in United States Pedorthic
Vasyli has launched with specialty Pedorthic shoe and orthotic makers across the US. With close to 2000 board certified pedorthists across the US, we felt it was important to introduce the Vasyli and Orthaheel ranges to this skilled and knowledgeable group. Joining Vasyli to assist with sales and technical support is C. Ped. David Fischer who is a well known and long serving pedorthist from Taos, New Mexico.
Attending the annual Pedorthic Symposium in San Antonio, Texas, in November was a great way to introduce the company to the pedorthic industry. There was a great deal of interest in products like the Vasyli Dananberg orthotic and the Orthaheel orthotic sandals and we hope to build a loyal following with this group going forward. Having already signed up for next year's symposium and with plans to run CEU accredited workshops for pedorthists in 2008, we hope to introduce many more pedorthists to Vasyli in the years ahead.
