A small team of researchers including Mr Dawe have won first prize for their research presentation at the 2018 British Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society Meeting. The research used a zero-gravity treadmill (a treadmill which blows air at your legs and can simulate you weighing less, all the way to being completely weight-less) in order to demonstrate the benefits of weight-loss in foot and arthritis. Patients in the study found a reduction of around 40% of their pain during the test. This has provided further evidence of the benefits of weight loss in improving foot and ankle pain.

Mr Dawe has been invited to speak to all comers at the Nuffield Chichester on the 30th October. His talk will cover many conditions affecting the foot and ankle such as painful bunions, painful toes, heel pain and the myriad of different treatments available for foot and ankle pain.
