Tri Hawk Unique Orthotic Rescues Two at the APMA Annual Scientific Meeting
Two attendees at the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Annual Scientific Meeting, in an unusual twist of fate, were saved from foot injury by a quick-thinking podiatrist who gave them the Nature-Fit orthotics.

There was no hesitation on the part of Dr. Michael Stein, podiatrist, who rushed to the Tri Hawk Nature-Fit exhibit at the Sands Expo. He knew exactly what he wanted, the 9000 series of Nature-Fit orthotic. After a day of walking from seminar to seminar to exhibit hall in the large facility, and in 4-inch heels, one woman was literally crippled. Dr. Stein walked, and a second woman limped in his wake to the Tri Hawk exhibit.
After a brief consultation with Tri Hawk staff, Dr. Stein, a San Leandro, CA Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, had the second woman insert the ultra-thin orthotics into her high heels. Upon standing on her feet, she exclaimed with surprise, and said her pain was gone. Wasting no more time, the two headed off to the first woman with a pair of Nature-Fit orthotics to rescue her.
“Nature-Fit orthotics are standard sized and prefabricated, which guide the foot into an ideal shape and movement for about 90% of the population. That woman’s high heels were not supporting her foot, and put enormous pressure on her feet,” said Fischer.
Tri Hawk’s view of orthotics differs from that of custom orthotic makers in two essential respects, Nature-Fit orthotics are prefabricated to specific sizes and types, and have a firm-but-flexible design. Walking on these orthotics will, in a short time, condition and rehabilitate the feet. “There is no proof that custom orthotics are better than prefabricated orthotics. In fact, there is some evidence that prefabricated may be better,” said Fischer.
Tri Hawk has been calling for independent studies to resolve the confusion, but the industry has yet to respond with positive action.
