Meet Mark, founder of Footworx

About Footworx Lab

My name is Mark Brady, and I’m the founder of Footworx Orthotics Lab in Hood River, Oregon.

I've always had an interest in feet, and when I moved to the Columbia River Gorge I discovered that people were bruising their heels and denting their windsurf boards.

As a windsurfer myself, this inspired me to design a windsurfing pad that would protect against those two things, and the world embraced it very well.

Out of that, I started developing other products for feet such as footpads, foot straps and such. This led me to producing orthotics and founding the Footworx Lab.

I founded Footworx to help creates foot alignment and shock control to help prevent injury, enhance recovery & improve sports performance. Plus, I offer products for Natural Pain Relief.

Let me help you assess and fit you with Custom Orthotics in my Lab in Hood River.

Review by Scott Rowley, Hood River

"Mark from Footworx seriously changed the game for me. My ski boots have never been so comfortable as a result of implementing his custom orthotics. I was nervous that my test day was going to cause a ton of pain, but this proved to not be the case. I spent 11 1/2 hours in my boots climbing Mount Shasta and skiing 7000 vertical feet off the top. This was by far the best day I have ever had in a pair of ski boots, and I look forward to the many days that will follow.

Thanks a TON Mark! Seriously, if your booths are giving trouble or you want to improve performance give Mark a call!"


Review by Frans Bosman, Mosier

"I went to Mark to have my feet examined after learning about him through Angelina's Wellness by Choice. I had been experiencing some foot pain for a long time by now from being on my feet for hours at a time in my pipe organ workshop.

I was impressed with how extremely knowledgeable Mark was as I asked him questions. And I'm as picky as any Dutchman would be in these things. I'm happy to report that I have my orthotics and that I also purchased several of Mark's foot health products to nurture my feet at the end of each day!"


Review by Daniel Comp, Mosier

"As a lifelong outdoor sports enthusiast, I'm disappointed that I waited 62 years to get custom orthotics for my walking, running and cycling shoes and orthotic insoles for my wetsuit booties for when I windsurf and wind foil. I will also get a pair for my snowboarding boots this winter.

These are completely new experiences now that my feet are actually connected to my gear and to the ground.  Thanks for changing everything Mark!

PS - those stupid little massage balls actually work!”
