Feb. 10, 2012 - PRLog -- (MACOMB, MI) – GraMedica®, the maker of the HyProCure® talotarsal stabilization device and other life-changing foot and ankle products, recently became the 4th sponsor of The American College of Foot and Ankle Pediatrics. Through this sponsorship, GraMedica® is helping the growing organization reach its goals of education on the care of children’s feet, not only to help those children in need of care, but to prevent future children from suffering from the ill-effects of misaligned feet.   

The American College of Foot and Ankle Pediatrics (ACFAP) is the American Podiatric Medical Association’s only recognized group of experts in the subspecialty of Podopediatrics. Their goal is to educate both medical colleagues and the general public on the importance of caring for children’s feet. The ACFAP strives to broadcast new and advanced information on the latest techniques in pediatric foot and ankle care. Through participation in seminars, lectures, publications and digital media the ACFAP distributes information to the public on the proper care of their child's feet and also promotes commitment to, and excellence in, the medical and surgical management of pediatric foot and ankle pathologies.

To learn more about the goals of the ACFAP or to become a member, visit their website at http://www.acfap.org. You can also follow their updates on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/American-College-of-Foot-an....

With this new sponsorship, ACFAP joins a growing lists of professional organizations which GraMedica® supports. GraMedica® is also a proud corporate sponsor of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS), American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA),   American Society of Podiatric Surgeons (ASPS), Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons (AENS), International Federation of Podiatrists (FIP), the Podiatry Institute, American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS), European Foot and Ankle Society (EFAS), Present Podiatry and the William Goldfarb Foundation.

“I believe strongly in our duty to support organizations that work to improve foot and ankle ailments,” says Dr. Michael E. Graham, podiatric surgeon and founder of GraMedica®. “The foot is the foundation of the body and foot health plays such an important role in quality of one’s life. ACFAP’s mission in particular is one we feel very strongly about. Too often, children’s foot problems are dismissed as something they will ‘grow out of,’ which is simply not true. Foot care specialists must continually seek to improve their knowledge and skills to offer patients the best options to treat their foot and ankle pathologies, and we are happy to provide support to organizations that further this mission.”

GraMedica®  provides a revolutionary internal extra-osseous hindfoot stabilization device that is placed inside the foot via a minimally invasive out-patient procedure. The effects of hindfoot misalignment include fallen arches, bunions, over-pronation, Achilles tendonitis, posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, and pain in the foot, ankle, knee, hip and back. The HyProCure® device instantly stabilizes the hindfoot bones, leading to reversal of the associated effects. HyProCure® represents a real solution for patients suffering from this condition (www.gramedica.com/gramedica/resources/presentations/hyprocure-talotarsal-stabilization/). HyProCure® has been used by foot surgeons since 2004.
