About Dan Everson

Dan Everson

Dan Everson is a respected podiatrist, entrepreneur, author and founder of kinetic theory, a revolutionary approach to orthotic design. He is also the founder of Dan Everson Podiatry, the largest group of podiatry practices across the Sunshine Coast.

After becoming a qualified podiatrist, Dan opened his first practice at 20 in Maroochydore. He quickly turned this small operation into a respected brand, building a network of seven thriving practices across the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.

Concerned by the shortcomings of traditional design and manufacturing of custom-made orthotics, Dan turned his attention to developing Australia’s first computer-designed and manufactured orthotics after consulting with leading experts around the world and years of extensive clinical research.

Dan’s design system was recently granted a patent in acknowledgement of its ability to assist practitioners prescribe an orthotic which will optimise the way force is transferred as the client walks.

Hundreds of clinicians across Australia today work with Dan who provides them with custom-made orthotics through his laboratory Kinetic Orthotics®, which has been in operation since 1992.

Dan’s work is known for bringing a more evidence-based approach to orthotic design, and he has shared his findings with podiatry students and practitioners at lecturers and workshops across Australia. Dan has contributed his knowledge and findings to help develop several undergraduate education programs in Australia.

He is committed to keeping the podiatry industry at the cutting edge of modern orthotic therapy as the industry evolves through making new resources and news available through the Kinetic Learning Centre.
