Align toes and improve balance and stability. Similar to braces impacting the alignment of teeth, Correct Toes slowly and progressively change foot architecture. Structural changes create a wider base of support, improving balance, proprioception, gait and posture.
Strengthen muscles throughout the foot and lower leg. Accompanied by naturally-shaped footwear, Correct Toes encourage the foot to move, flex and bend. As muscles strengthen, the foot is able to support itself, eliminating the need for artificial arch support and orthotics.
Restore foot function and relieve foot pain. Correct Toes is a foot health tool that can be used to restore normal and natural foot and toe function. Foot pain and problems can be resolved when the toes are realigned in the way that nature intended.
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.
