Foundation Member – BAREFOOTSCIENCE™
BAREFOOTSCIENCE™ is an insole unlike any other. One that correctly exercises your feet while they are in your shoes. Not only does it feel incredible, but it is the easiest form of exercise to do, strengthening feet on every step.
BAREFOOTSCIENCE™ works differently to any other insole with its’ 7 increasingly large inserts, carefully positioned at the mid-arch, or the apex of the arches of the foot, under the dome-shaped insole. Each time a new insert is placed into the dome it encourages your foot to respond and work harder by progressively stimulating sensory nerves in the soles of the feet, increasing proprioceptive feedback and building new muscle. The end result is a proven increase in; arch strength and height, balance, left-right side symmetry, improved running performance and reduced risk of injury.
Seen as a form of ‘disruptive technology’, BAREFOOTSCIENCE™ doesn’t support or prop up the foot. It is designed to work successfully within almost any running shoe, enhancing that shoes performance and increasing its value to the user, by safely and steadily strengthening their feet and improving biomechanics from feet to neck.
Scientific data, using sEMG, spatial temporal gait analysis, and force plates consistently show;
- improvements in Contact time symmetry
- better balance
- increased and more symmetrical muscle activation
- improved performance
- improved circulation
- reduced injury risk, and
- effective injury recovery
Our top of the range model incorporates CELLIANT in the surface material, which has received FDA approval for its claims to transform your body’s heat into full-spectrum infrared energy, promoting local circulation and cell oxygenation while keeping you drier and at the perfect temperature, which means more energy, endurance, strength, stamina, comfort, and quicker recovery.
