Conventional footwear is the problem.
The human body innately functions best when we walk and run on bare feet. In fact, studies have shown that people who run barefoot suffer much less damaging stress to their bodies and fewer ankle and lower leg injuries. The more we wear shoes with rigid soles, tight laces, pointed toes, and other features that limit our natural ability to raise our arches and toes, the more we experience foot-related issues and pain.
Even the most expensive athletic shoes – the ones that promise to safeguard your feet through “cushioning impact” – actually account for 123% more frequent injuries than the cheapest shoes.*
Traditional insoles and orthotics don’t solve the issue of problematic footwear. They just cushion and support, treating the symptoms, not the cause of that pain, often creating a dependence on that artificial support. BioPods go the extra mile, providing the right kind of stimulus to actually change your reflexes and retrain your body mechanics until they adapt to healthy functioning. So, you experience painfree movement – from your feet to your legs, hips, and back.
