Introducing Our Brand New Website!

A brand new website to facilitate our market expansion

After months of hard work and dedication, we are pleased to announce that our new website has been launch!

Podoblock New Website Launch

Designed with a fresh new look, user-friendly navigation, and excellent speed optimization, our visitors will experience effortless browsing!
The new Site facilitates our market expansion to the Small Animal veterinary and Human medical field with our current and new product range.

Our visitors will experience a smooth and easy way to browse and shop online, learn more about our imaging solutions, and stay up-to-date with news and events in the market sector.

Expanding Our Markets

With over 25+ years of experience in the Equine field and 13 + years of developing products to enhance imaging efficiency for mobile equine veterinarians, we have expanded to the Small Animal (Veterinary) and Human (Medical) markets with our unique and innovative products!

Why Are We Expanding

What makes our products so unique are the durability, portability and practical benefits gained by the end-users. You can pack them up and take them anywhere with you. The set up is effortless, and you can efficiently get the job and get back to your life or tend to another patient.

Small Animal

We have had many successful years in the equine veterinary field and received multiple requests and recommendations for our products to be supplied to Small Animal veterinary sector. Our products are already being used in this sector – both in the mobile and stationary working environment. 

For example, our Special X-ray Solutions products facilitate safe and high-quality x-rays of small animals.
This is just one example of the many benefits our products provide for veterinarians. We truly understand the advantages of being mobile, efficient and safe while obtaining veterinary images. And all our products are designed to facilitate and improve the working environment and imaging quality.

Human

The current pandemic has disrupted our lives tremendously and limited our access to prompt healthcare. With hospitals and health centres overwhelmed with COVID19 cases, many non-essential patients have limited physical access to health centres, hospital care and consultations while maintaining social distancing and staying safe.

With this dilemma, health care workers must be more mobile and venture out to meet and tend to their patients.

For several years, hospitals in some parts of Europe have been using our Stat-X multi-purpose and portable stands to obtain images of human patients and for other functions.
What makes the stands and other Podoblock products attractive are the unique benefits.
With the end-user in mind, our products are made with lightweight materials but durable and last forever.

Stat-X Multi-purpose stands

All stands are foldable or retractable for easy transportation and space-saving in areas or compartments with limited space. The multi-functionalities are effective for achieving efficiency, especially in a mobile environment.
Thus, with our current product range and new products launches in the pipeline for this year, we believe that there are opportunities to grow in this sector.

And we are certainly looking forward to it!

View Human

We hope you find our new website pleasant. If you encounter any problems or have any recommendations/suggestions on improving your experience with the site, please let us know. We are always open to listen.

February 2021: Featuring The RedBoot Corrective Foal Boot!

In this Newsletter, we featured the Redboot Corrective Foal Boot.

RedBoot Corrective Foal Boot 

Each year, thousands of foals are born with flexural or angular limb deformities, deviations at the carpus or fetlocks level, affecting their optimal performance later in life.

Foal with deformed fetlocks

To manage these problemsequine veterinarian Dr. A. Almanza invented the RedBoot Corrective Foal Bootwhich Podoblock supplies. 

The boot is specially made for managing

Correction of:

  • Flexural Limb Deformities or contracted tendons
  • Angular Limb Deformities or toe-in / toe-out conditions

Prevention of:

  • Acquired retraction due to pain post-injury

And for:

  • Permanent or temporary immobilization of the distal limb (for better management of fractures, tendon or ligament injuries and wounds)

It is a ‘one size fits all’  for foals up to approximate 90 days – depending on the size and breed, as these problems can only be managed at the early stages with external coaptation or external devices. 

The limiting factor regarding the size will be at the fetlock articulation level, which means that the feet themselves may not be the problem. It could be depending on the foal’s size and the condition, i.e. swelling of the leg.

With Foal season coming up, we expect possible deformities, and that’s why the RedBoot Corrective Foal Boot is the # 1 choice for managing those problems! 

According to, equine veterinarian, Dr. C.J.W. Scheffer

“We are very happy with the RedBoots. They are superb for young foals with flexural deformities and very easy to use.”

Stay tuned.

Greetings,

January 2021: New Year, Fresh Start | Brexit

Happy New Year!

We wish you all a prosperous 2021. This year we look forward to better serve you through our communication channels, product repair services and processes.
We hope that soon we will have some normality to our lives again – how we communicate and interact with each other, whether through exhibitions or small in-person conversations.  And that means we hope to meet again soon. Until then, we wish you good health and fortunes. 

Fresh Start

In 2020, we worked tirelessly on our branding strategy. As a result, we have a new and fresh style, including a redesigned logo and tag line. We’ve retained the name Podoblock because the product was our first and signature product that set the company’s foundation. And of which we are proud. This transformation is to facilitate the expansion of Podoblock – which we will share with you soon. Stay tuned!

Brexit and Podoblock

On January 1, 2021, the United Kingdom has left the European Union. However, luckily, the UK managed, just in time, to settle on a trade deal called the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA). Read more here

As our main office is located in the Netherlands, this also affects how we conduct business with our UK customers and sales partners, especially regarding the shipping procedure.

How will this influence UK customers purchasing from Podoblock?

If you’re purchasing from us:

  • There will be no import duties on products shipping to the UK with a value from GBP 135.00 and higher. 
  • Expect at least one day delay in shipping due to extra paperwork and customs handling.

We will work effortlessly to ensure that all shipments are processed as efficiently as possible. If you incur any problems or change in prices via our webshop, and it doesn’t look right, please contact our sales office to rectify the issue(s). 

That said, we wish you all the best and a smooth process throughout the year.

Newsletter October 2020

In this newsletter, we announced our in-house repair services for all of our customers. And most importantly, what not to do when experiencing a problem. We also updated our customers about Events that took place.

Read more below:

Product Repairs, and what “NOT” to do 

First and foremost, we want to thank all of you who have supported us throughout the years—that’s why we offer our support in return. 

From the initial stage of our company, one of the most crucial factors for building the business was to develop products that are durable and made of the highest quality material. 

We have always set our standard through high product quality, and we continue to maintain that. Therefore, our products are made to last and rarely damage by themselves. If there are any damages, there usually is an explanation for it. 

In such cases, we can help by first determining what the damages are through speaking over the phone or images through WhatsApp or e-mail. We listen. And if the product comes with a warranty, we can guide you with instructions from our side, and only then might you be able to repair it yourself with parts we can send.

If all fails, we will send a loan replacement while fixing the damaged item or sending a new one. 

NewCart
Example: Dismantled NewCart (DO NOT DO THIS)

We strongly advise against dismantling a product before speaking with us or reporting it first. 

The reason is, our products are sometimes complicated yet straightforward, and you may not know what the problem is. It could be tiny and fixable by you, or something more complicated. That is why we strongly recommend that you report it first.

The rest we will do, happily.
