As a second generation Pedorthist, Scott has been servicing patients' needs in the medical field, as well as the needs of professional and Olympic athletes and others in the sports field, for over 23 years. It’s this background, combined with his experience as an Orthotist (specializing in bracing the entire body), that make him uniquely positioned to help cyclists achieve their most comfortable and powerful position on the bike through the use of custom insoles. His specialties are Gait Analysis and Sport Specific orthotics.
During his time as the President and Founder of Peterson Performance Products, Inc., dba Foot Fitness West, a successful Pedorthic clinic in Bend, Oregon, Scott supplied three pro cycling teams with custom orthotics (Saturn, Navigators, and Mercury).
In 2009 he designed and patented an orthotic molding system for custom cycling orthotics which is the backbone of the Cyclesoles™ revolution. This new approach to alleviating discomfort and harnessing power represents a shift-change in the way that the cycling industry will use and think about custom insoles.
Scott’s contribution to the world of sports goes far beyond cycling. He has sponsored MBSEF racers and supplied them with custom ski orthotics and boot fittings and has been a volunteer at the Disabled Western Regional Waterski Championships, providing on the spot custom solutions and athlete support.
In 2006 and 2007 he formed and supported a team of amputees for Bend, Oregon’s famous Pole Pedal Paddle race, providing the custom orthotics, fittings and prosthetics the athletes required to compete.
An avid cyclist and co-founder of the Cyclesoles Cycling Team, Scott is also accomplished on the water. He has been a Western Regional Waterski Champion and ranked top ten in Nationals in 2002 and 2005.
