At FCA The National, Foot Levelers Gives Away 3D BodyView® Digital Imaging Device, The Profession’s Most Powerful Digital Scanner

Plus, Foot Levelers Unveils New Custom Orthotics, Shoethotics® and Hosts Dynamic Presentations by Drs. Mitch Mally, Tim Maggs


Roanoke, VA
—September 1, 2016—At the Florida Chiropractic Association’s (FCA) The National last week in Orlando, Foot Levelers gave away a 3D BodyView digital imaging device to one lucky attendee selected at random. The winner was newly minted Doctor of Chiropractic Dr. Bradley Koser of Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida, a graduate of National University of Health Sciences and the University of South Florida.

The 3D BodyView, an $800 value, will help Dr. Koser get his practice off on the right foot. It’s the fastest, most convenient and accurate way to capture images of patients’ feet and assess their need for custom-made functional orthotics. Plus, the powerful, on-screen imagery and print-ready Report of Findings are compelling patient education tools. The 3D BodyView also helps to improve patient outcomes and increase practice revenue as those who are assessed using the device are more likely to invest in custom-made functional orthotics. In a recent Facebook post, Dr. Koser commented: “I'm so stoked that I won the raffle for a Foot Levelers 3D BodyView orthotics setup at the FCA!!!”

Also at FCA, Foot Levelers sponsored presentations by Dr. Mitch Mally and Dr. Tim Maggs. Dr. Maggs discussed the CPOYATM Providers Network, made possible by Foot Levelers’ funding. Dr. Mally gave several talks on topics spanning Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, foot/ankle biomechanics and shoulder conditions, drawing energetic crowds back to the Foot Levelers booths for demonstrations and “learning beyond the classroom.” At booths #1 and #25, attendees also handled a number of exciting new products fresh from the Foot Levelers’ R&D lab including:

  • New CPOYA custom-made functional orthotic, designed to help prevent injury and assist biomechanics in young athletes.
  • New AM7 custom-made functional orthotic, designed to promote healthy posture and biomechanics in teens ages 13-18.
  • New Shoethotics®, from OluKai, Florsheim, Merrell, Brooks, New Balance and Clarks.
  • New head-turning colors in our popular line of custom orthotic waterproof flip-flops: deep, lush Jungle Green and invigorating Wild Orange.

“Ready to Grow?” Foot Levelers Opens Training Center, A “Boot Camp” for DCs Ready to Take Their Orthotics Practice to the Next Level

Led by Dr. Tim Maggs, Among the Nation’s Most Successful Sports Chiropractors, Expert in Treating Young Athletes—Reserve Your Seat at FootLevelers.com/PracticeXcelerator

Roanoke, VA—August 11, 2016—Foot Levelers is proud to unveil the latest in its growing network of educational institutions dedicated to practice growth: the Foot Levelers Practice Xcelerator. On September 15th, Dr. Tim Maggs, one of Foot Levelers’ strongest proponents and among the nation’s most successful sports Chiropractors, leads the first training in New York. Described by Dr. Maggs as a “boot camp for doctors who are serious about growth,” the half-day session will feature training on Maggs’ Structural Fingerprint Exam™, with a strong emphasis on 3D digital scanning of the feet, radiology, and laser, among other protocols. To learn more and reserve your seat, visit FootLevelers.com/PracticeXcelerator.

“100% of My Patients Get Custom Orthotics. What About Yours?” —Dr. Tim Maggs

Dr. Maggs first developed the Structural Fingerprint Exam over 25 years ago while working with the New York Giants. Noting that care for players was focused on reacting to injuries, rather than preventing them, Dr. Maggs developed a system of pinpointing biomechanical and structural weaknesses in the body— weaknesses that could lead to injury. Using this preventative approach, the Structural Fingerprint Exam, all of Dr. Maggs’ patients walk away with a pair of custom-made functional orthotics from Foot Levelers as part of their injury-prevention plan. Foot Levelers’ custom-made orthotics are research- proven to help correct pedal instabilities, absorb shock, and improve biomechanics. They are a critical component of Dr. Maggs’ care, especially for the young athletes who make up the majority of his patients.

Learn How to Reach the Middle and High School Athlete Market

Learning how to perform the exam is also a great way for DCs to break into the underserved middle and high school sports market. Dr. Maggs is a recognized national expert on the subject; he is the Director of Sports Biomechanics at Christian Brothers Academy in Albany, works with more than 25 high schools, and has performed over 1,500 of his Structural Fingerprint Exams on young athletes over the years.

“Foot Levelers is committed to supporting doctors and ensuring their practices are strong and successful, and to helping patients stay safe and injury-free,” said Foot Levelers CEO Kent S. Greenawalt. “Partnering with Dr. Maggs in opening the Training Center and teaching the Structural Fingerprint Exam promotes both of these goals.”

Foot Levelers in Oslo, Norway For Annual European Chiropractors’ Union Convention

Thousands of attendees representing 23 European nations will also enjoy presentations on current research, emerging techniques, pediatric care, extremity care, and more.

Foot Levelers’ Innovative Posture Protect Program Helps Parents Save Money with Each New Purchase of Custom-Made Functional Orthotics for Kids 

Program Helps Keep Kids Supported as They Grow; Available with brand NEW AM7 for ages 13-18 and Ultra Young Soles® for ages 5-12


ROANOKE, VIRGINIA—July 22, 2016
—Once parents fitted their children’s feet with custom-made functional orthotics, the inevitable is bound to happen... They may outgrow their orthotics in less than a year! That’s why Foot Levelers introduced has its innovative Posture Protect Program: patients between the ages of 5 and 18 get $10 off each new pair of orthotics, as foot size increases by 1.5 sizes. A new scan is required to ensure the perfect fit.


During a child’s growth, the normal development of the pelvis and the spine will suffer if there is a foot imbalance. Research shows a budding athlete’s skill level—even running at recess—can be significantly affected. Later on, foot problems can interfere with adolescent or adult spinal function, which can result in poor biomechanics and accelerated degenerative changes in the knees, hips and spine. The Posture Protect Program is the perfect compliment to Foot Levelers’ custom-made orthotics for youth: the brand NEW AM7 for ages 13-18 and Ultra Young Soles® for ages 5-12. Both AM7 and Ultra Young Soles were developed specifically to address these challenges and to protect the growing body.


Ultra Young Soles and AM7 work in conjunction with a doctor’s treatments to help keep a child’s body healthy and balanced. When the spine and pelvis are properly supported and balanced, children are more likely to develop a better, healthier posture as they grow into adulthood. Like all Foot Levelers custom-made functional orthotics, AM7 and Ultra Young Soles are created using 3D scanning technology or Casting Kits so that any foot problems can be observed and measured in detail by Foot Levelers’ experienced technicians.

New Flip-Flop Colors! Hear Them Roar! 

Maui and Fiji, Our Custom Orthotic Waterproof Flip-Flops, Just Got a Little Wilder in Jungle Green and Wild Orange...


April 27, 2016—Roanoke, VA—Foot Levelers recently introduced two new head-turning colors to its popular line of custom orthotic waterproof flip-flops: deep, lush Jungle Green and invigorating Wild Orange.

A favorite among Chiropractic patients, Foot Levelers’ custom orthotic waterproof flip-flops Maui for men and Fiji for women offer supreme comfort and customized support that defies the elements. Maui and Fiji feature a footbed that repels moisture while massaging the foot, cushy foam mid-layer that absorbs shock, and a silky smooth nylon strap that will never rub or chafe. Perfect for a day on the water, Maui and Fiji are even designed to float.

Foot Levelers also carries an array of men’s and women’s custom orthotic flip-flops in high-quality leather and suede. All Foot Levelers’ custom orthotic flip-flops are...

  • Individually designed for a patient’s unique foot, body and health needs based on a 3D image or cast of their feet
  • Crafted to cushion, support and balance the feet, for improved joint alignment, proprioception and pain relief throughout the Kinetic Chain
  • Engineered with a built-in, customized 3 Arch Advantage™ orthotic, the world’s healthiest, a proprietary Foot Levelers design (no other orthotic company has it)
  • 100% Guaranteed or their money back
    With the arrival of spring, patients are inevitably kicking off their winter boots in favor of sandals and flip-flops. But footwear should be chosen carefully. Research shows that flat-as-a-board summer sandals and traditional flip-fops can cause serious harm to the feet and the Kinetic Chain. Foot Levelers’ line of custom orthotic flip-flops and Sandalthotics® are the healthy alternative to the scourge of harmful warm weather footwear.
