Mar 19, 2015Company News: NFL Athletic Trainers Honor Foot Management
Foot Management was honored on February 16th at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis by the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society (PFATS). In his speech, Roland Ramirez of the Houston Texans, mentioned that Foot Management has worked with the NFL’s athletic trainers for at least 32 years. Each NFL athletic trainer was present when Foot Management was awarded a crystal football by Ramirez to commemorate the event.
Looking back, Jack Kaeufer, President and Founder of Foot Management, recalled that the first professional football player that he made orthotics for was a player with the Washington Redskins in 1978. After that, he created products for players on the Washington Bullets(Wizards), the Baltimore Colts (Ravens), and the NFL’s Raiders and Cowboys. Now, Foot Management supplies products to nearly every professional team.
In addition, Foot Management holds the name trademark on Turf Toe, a problem that plagues many athletes. Foot Management also has developed dynamic semi-rigid foot orthotics that support the foot and allow the foot to be a mobile adapter. The company also produces foot pads and insoles for professional, collegiate athletes and the weekend warriors.
“Over the years, we have built trust with our clients,” Kaeufer says “They know we will provide them with custom handmade, high quality devices. No pre-made parts are ever used in the fabrication of our devices. Our slogan is ‘Made With Pride By People Who Care.’ We are not a big company and don’t want to be, we just want to be the best.”
If you’re watching any collegiate, professional or Olympic sporting event, chances are you’ll see athletes outfitted with Foot Management products. Foot Management supplies their products to orthopedic doctors, and podiatrists throughout North America. Foot Management also has off-the-shelf products that can be ordered online.
