Mr. Ian Sadler: Course Director

Ian’s passion is helping people stay healthy and achieve their goals. Ian’s there to support patients from running their first half marathon, to keeping up with the grandchildren.

Ian began his career in clinical biomechanics by developing digital gait analysis technologies for academic and clinical use. He then worked as an orthotic insole consultant to several of the UK’s leading manufacturing laboratories, and has consulted on official standards of military footwear.

Since starting his own clinic in 2008, Ian has delivered clinical biomechanics seminars, workshops and training for RSscan Lab Ltd, ICB Medical, JPM Products, DLT Podiatry and LBG medical on all areas of clinical biomechanics and orthotic therapy, and is a regular guest lecturer to Body Control Pilates, the UK's leading Pilates teacher training organisation. He has done his fair share of Women's Institute and breakfast business meeting talks too!

Most recently Ian has been working with industry-leading companies in the UK, France, Germany, and Belgium to develop 3D printed Orthotic Insoles, creating clinical protocols and prescription processes to bring this exciting new technology to the clinical coal face.

Ian was superb and his experience in treating people with running related problems really shone through. It was aimed at just the right level so that all of the participants kept up to speed even though it was a multidisciplinary group.

Lynley Otterburn

For me, it was the perfect location and setting for this training. Theory and practice in the morning and afternoon – brilliant!

    Coaching/Mentoring Testimonials

    “If you’re looking to improve or develop your biomechanics practice, I wholeheartedly recommend Ian Sadler. We “met” once a week for 8 weeks to progress and deliver our program. There was only a little we couldn’t do online, which we covered in a face to face day. Ian has been really patient and I must say he can cover anything instantly. There’s a huge amount of knowledge and practice there to tap in to! The end result for me is that I have become more confident and I’m glad to say competent in examining, diagnosing and treating biomechanical issues. Which is great for me personally and for my patients.” Valerie Scott, Podiatrist.

    “The coaching in both assessment and treatment of patients gave me new ideas where I could add to my own practice to benefit my patients. I enjoyed the prescription of insoles which I found very useful and added to practice and knowledge. The training was about theory and practice together.” Gill Kenny, Podiatrist
