Karl is CPed CM and practicing Pedorthics in Australia since 1988. He initially trained in Germany and worked some time in Pedorthics in Japan. Karl did further education in Australia to qualify for registration as a CPed CM. Karl initiated the Bachelor of Pedorthics program at SCU and is running it through its entire life cycle.

A large amount of his day-to-day work is about the Diabetic foot but a passion of his is the sensomotoric topic. A field with little pedorthic related research. A field where he has a dedicated patient base that is driven by word of mouth and tangible results.
