Why BioPods?

Grounded in science and proven in practice.

Designed with the same conditioning principles used by elite athletes and sports medicine professionals—and used and recommended by healthcare professionals—BioPods are changing the foot care game by providing stimulation instead of artificial support. Each Pod targets the foot’s arch, creating a “springy” stimulus that gently increases over time to safely retrain your protective reflexes and help your feet, legs, hips, and back adjust naturally to healthy function.

Conventional footwear is the problem.

The human body innately functions best when we walk and run on bare feet, because they are able to move freely and receive the sensory information required for healthy protective reflex function. 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. Healthy reflex function is diminished by footwear that limits our natural ability to raise our arches and toes. The more we wear shoes with rigid soles, cushioning, support, and restrictive toe boxes,  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. Rather than addressing the underlying cause of the problems and pain, they provide cushioning and support in an effort to mitigate the symptoms, often creating a dependence on that artificial support. BioPods Stimsoles provide the variable stimulus required to retrain healthy protective reflex function and optimal body mechanics, helping you to experience painfree movement from your feet to your legs, hips, and back.

How BioPods Work.

Did you know that there are more than 100,000 sensory receptors in the soles of your feet? That’s what makes it possible for your body to receive the sensory information it needs to function safely whenever you walk or run barefoot on an uneven surface. When you’re barefoot,  your feet naturally receive the varied sensory stimuli that your brain needs to make adjustments in your body’s movement and to keep you safe from injury.

The BioPods proprietary design and  thermoplastic elastomer materials variably stimulate – rather than support – your arches.

Most insoles and orthotics actually dampen that sensory feedback and weaken your feet.  Our Variable Reflex Technology™ was developed by a team of foot function experts to re-create the varied stimulus in your shoes that your body needs to restore and maintain healthy function. BioPods Stimsoles feature Variable Reflex Pods that stimulate and enhance the protective reflexes in your feet, legs, hips, and lower back.
