Barefoot Science is an intelligent solution to an age-old problem that has never been solved by traditional orthotics. Pain and dysfunction is caused by muscle weakness, so it follows that strengthening is the path to wellness.
The standard treatment for foot and joint pain is orthotics or device loaded shoes which effectively brace the foot, preventing movement. However, we believe this is not the solution. Through rehabilitation and strengthening work, Barefoot Science builds a better foundation for pain free movement.
A Stronger Foundation
Architects know that arches lend strength. The arch in our feet works similarly, absorbing pressure and supporting our weight. An increased arch height results in a more even weight distribution across the joints of the foot, decreasing tension on the plantar fascia. Barefoot Science works to build arch strength by stimulating the muscles in the foot, building strength over a short period of time.
The Barefoot Feeling
Our feet were designed to be bare. Bare feet feel the ground better and can react quickly to changes on the ground. Barefoot Science stimulates the body’s innate proprioception, enabling you to better sense your feet, and improving balance and stability.
A Gradual and Dramatic Change
With its’ dome-shaped insole, Barefoot Science begins by progressively stimulating receptors in the soles of the feet and building new muscle. While it is doing this, it is also creating new neural pathways to help your body’s natural sense of alignment and balance. Each time a new insert is placed into the dome, forcing your foot to work harder. The end result is a proven increase in arch strength and height, balance, foot stability, and ultimately, a stronger kinetic chain.
The Science Stands Up
Independently tested and re-tested, Barefoot Science has a proven track record of dramatic results for all people:
- Those who stand or walk for extended periods of time for their jobs
- Military personnel
The Barefoot Solution
- All BAREFOOTSCIENCE™ patents are focused on bringing progressive exercise to the feet while wearing shoes, replicating the positive effect of walking barefoot in the sand or grass.
- BAREFOOTSCIENCE™ effectively addresses the cause of the foot related problems, rather than simply accommodating the symptoms.
- COMPLIANCE: Easy to Use. The product is simple and straightforward – put them into your shoes and they begin to work.
- TRANSITION AND USE: One Step at a Time. Unlike orthoses, there is virtually no accommodation period. Non dependency makes it the safer option.
- THE RIGHT FIT: For Everyday Living. Fit into any sensible footwear allowing for continual wear, although it isn’t essential.
- STRENGTHENING: Addressing the Cause. Encourages foot strengthening, leading to the transition back to walking barefoot or with minimal footwear.
