I have peripheral diabetic neuropathy which results in foot and hand pain as well as walking and balance problems. I used to not be able to be on my feet for more than an hour or two and with disabling pain at that. I could not work.

Neither a GP, podiatrist, neurologist nor 2 orthotic companies had any solutions for me so I thought I should just get my problem left foot amputated. Not the cleverest of ideas but underlines how desperate I felt. Anyway, this led to my calling VOG because they had the word “prosthetics” in their name. I wanted to know what I was in for.

Ben Speicher, a senior certified prosthetist and orthotist handled the first interview. He laughed about my idea and told me I could keep my foot but needed a full bed multi-layered foam orthotic. Since then, now ten years ago, I’ve been using full bed orthotics by VOG being able to be able to work long days without pain. I occasionally use a brace, also by VOG, which goes from toe to knee on my left leg. It’s for when I have to stand in one spot for long periods. As with riding a bicycle, if I’m not rolling forward, I can barely balance.

VOG has the rare combination where they are both highly professional while remaining generously personable. None of the usual “your call is important to us” gloss and spin. They care. They go the extra yard. They work. Everyone from the manager to technicians to receptionists. They even tolerate my stupid jokes. It’s likely your experience with them will be as good as mine has been. Just don’t make stupid jokes.

I was referred to VOG by the foot clinic at St Paul’s Hospital. I have suffered from severe foot and ankle pain for many years due to posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. After a thorough assessment they fabricated a pair of custom foot orthotics using a combination of materials. At the fitting I could immediately feel pain relief and since then my feet haven’t felt this good in years. I am so grateful to them for giving me pain free mobility and a new lease on life!
