About Interpod

For people that can’t afford Custom Orthotics

Australian sport podiatrists Graeme Simpson (B.App.Sc. Human Movement, B.App.Sc. Podiatry) and Dan Thomas (B.App.Sc. Human Movement, B.App.Sc. Podiatry), directors of Interpod, began their careers as physical education teachers. They shared a passion for sports, believing in the motto “healthy body, healthy mind.” Their mission was to help others reach their personal goals, from a 1km walk to climbing a mountain. Along the way, they discovered that the most common reason for non-participation was overuse injuries to the foot or leg, which led them to study podiatry.

Upon graduation, they started manufacturing custom-made orthotics. CNC, plaster cast, and 3D printing are the standard methods used to create custom-made orthotics; however, these methods are time-consuming and expensive. Graeme and Dan faced the challenge of producing custom-like orthotics more cost-effectively.

Their dedication and innovation led to the development of Interpod orthotics, offering high-quality, affordable solutions for individuals seeking relief from foot and leg pain. These orthotics provide the benefits of custom-made orthotics without the hefty price tag, making them accessible to a wider range of people.
