A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Podiatrist Collection - When you get right down to it, there are the feet! Consider all the time that the vast majority of the population spends doing things on their feet! And yet we tend to take it for granted. The fact of the matter is that the feet take a royal beating, day after day. We are asking a lot from our feet and most of the time they respond admirably. More and more people are entering into sports and routines that put the feet through intense utilization. Probably the best thing we can do is to wear appropriate footwear that supports and protects the feet. When things go awry, we visit a podiatrist, DPM, doctor of podiatric medicine. Podiatrists are the only health care professional whose total training zeroes in on the foot and ankle, and related body systems. They receive extensive training in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of foot and ankle disorders. After an undergraduate degree, they spend four years in a college of podiatric medicine to obtain a doctorate degree. Passing state and national tests then results in a license to practice. Podiatrists! Some Trivia: "When our feet hurt, we hurt all over." Socrates. Leonardo da Vinci called the foot a "masterpiece" of engineering and a work of art. Each foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 20 muscles, and 100 ligaments.Among the very few stamps directly related to feet and shoemaking are the leatherworker of the colonial era, and Jan Matzeliger, who became an apprentice cobbler in Philadelphia. In 1877 he was cutting and sewing leather in a shoe factory when he figured how a machine could be used to do much of the work. The result was a prototype that worked. By 1883, with outside financing, he owned a patented and commercially manufactured item. His company was the Consolidated Hand Method Lasting Machine Company. Tragically he died at the age of 37 from tuberculosis. His machine, however, increased shoe production by 1,000 percent.
