The history of the company.


SIDAS is founded by three ski instructors: Loïc David, Jacques Martin, Gabriel Pellicot.

Their personalities and their convictions position SIDAS on the buoyant ski market, developing and marketing a foot-comfort solution for skiing: an insole moulded to one’s foot shape.

The business grows internationally (United States and Japan).

Requested by foot surgeon and doctors and on the impetus of Patrick Boismal, SIDAS opens up to a new market: medical appliances. Birth of the PODIATECH brand and development of adapted solutions for foot-health professionals.



The company is taken over by its three executive officers:

  • François Duvillard
  • Jean-Pierre Delangle
  • Thierry Ravillion


Right from the start, our multi-disciplinary team, backed up by expert professionals, devised a range of innovative solutions to meet our customers’ requirements.

Year after year, our international approach has led us to develop innovative techniques and materials that match different podiatry needs around the world (OPCT, 3 feet patho-logic, etc.).

The accessibility of this offer makes PODIATECH the world’s leader partner for foot health professionals in the care and health sectors with recognized brands such as QENOA.
