Podiatry Clinical Trials
Thanks to our partnership with Atlantic Foot and Ankle Associates, our research team will be able to conduct ongoing podiatry clinical trials here in Volusia County.
The average person’s feet are pounded by hundreds of tons of force every day, simply from walking around. They actually have a very tough job and are subjected to a lot of wear and tear. If you have ever suffered from significant foot issues, then you’ve likely benefited from podiatry clinical research.
It’s through these clinical trials that more effective treatments for achilles tendonitis, athlete’s foot and even sprained ankles are made available to our community.
By participating in a podiatry clinical trial, you’re helping researchers and physicians better understand the human foot and how to cure its potential ailments.

Why We Need Clinical Trial Volunteers
A clinical trial isn’t necessarily something the you’d think about when it comes to dealing with athlete’s foot or other common foot disorders. By partnering with Atlantic Foot & Ankle Associates, we hope that we can connect with more patients within this community.
While participating in a clinical trial may not be a part of your normal health routine, it can be incredibly beneficial! Often, volunteers receive the most promising upcoming treatments and therapies.
Not to mention that you are doing a good deed by contributing to the advance of modern medicine and taking a more active role in your healthcare. Without podiatry clinical trials, we wouldn’t be able to develop treatments that are safer or more effective. When you choose to participate, everyone is able to take a step forward.
Do You Qualify for a Podiatry Study?
If you haven’t participated in a clinical trial before, you probably have quite a few questions. One of those may be, “How do I know if I qualify for a podiatry clinical trial?” This isn’t easy to answer, since each study we conduct has a unique set of inclusion criteria. This also means that you’ll need to speak with our recruitment team to know for sure.
If you meet the inclusion criteria, you will of course be given time to decide whether you actually want to do it. There is never any obligation. If you qualify, it simply means that a great (and free!) healthcare option has become available to you.
Should you choose to move forward, you’ll also need to read and sign our informed consent form before you can be enrolled in one of our clinical studies. The consent form will explain all of your responsibilities and rights as a clinical trial volunteer.
Not able to participate in a clinical trial? You can still help further our research (while earning some money in the process) through our Refer-A-Friend program.
