Karin Brückner has been in practice as a podiatrist in Cape Town for over 25 years. She sees patients from all walks of life such as athletes, retirees, diabetics, children, and anyone needing foot care.
She treats all foot conditions and symptoms related to the foot and ankle, from ingrown toenails, warts and nail infections to foot injuries which may require orthosis (arch supports) or other interventions.
Her practice is nestled at the foot of Table Mountain in Vredehoek, also known as Devil’s Peak, which is close to the centre of Cape Town, with easy access and parking.
About Medipod products
Karin devised the Medipod Foot Repair Cream after many requests from patients for an all-in-one cream. When used regularly, Medipod moisturises, gently exfoliates, deodorises, and helps eliminate bacteria and fungi.
Medipod Foot Repair Cream was Medipod’s first breakthrough and is now widely used by podiatrists, dermatologists, and beauty therapists throughout South Africa and overseas.
About the Fungisolve range
As a therapist dealing with foot infections daily, Karin Brückner realised that fungal and bacterial infections often return – even after successful treatment with creams or drugs. Bacteria or fungi cling to face masks, shoes, socks, underwear, sports clothes, leotards, gym clothes, towels, floor mats and linen. Bacteria and fungi even survive long washes in hot water with detergents.
Karin, together with leading scientists, developed Medipod FungiSolve™, a concentrated, economical laundry solution that decontaminates any materials, even in cold water. In SABS tests, FungiSolve has been shown to be a potent decontaminator. Scientific tests have shown that FungiSolve will not damage cloth, dye colour or stitching of expensive sports shoes and clothes. Fungisolve has been proven to eliminate viruses, including novel coronaviruses.
There are four products in the Fungisolve range:
GermFogger – an aerosol disinfectant and decontaminator created to quickly and effectively decontaminate rooms and offices, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Fungisolve – An easy-to-use, economical liquid solution to safely disinfect and decontaminate fabric and material, killing almost all the nasties causing athlete’s foot, nail infections and a range of skin and foot infections.
SportsWash – SportWash is the go-to product to eliminate bacterial odours in sports gear. That “old gym bag” smell is created by bacteria that live in the fibres of technical gear that are not removed by normal washing. SportsWash can be used on all sports apparel, sports equipment, like yoga mats, boxing gloves, face masks, and all surfaces
Fungisolve for Pets Stuff – This product can be used as a spray or a wash to protect pregnant women and families from infections caused by pets that spread bacteria and fungus. It also eliminates odours and bacteria in pet accessories and cleans pet mess off floors and communal surfaces. It makes a great wash for equestrian gear such as bridles, saddles, numnahs and blankets. It is not a pet shampoo so don’t wash your animal friend in the solution!
