Happy Feet At 2007 Florida Restaurant Show
For optimal comfort, support, and therapeutic effectiveness, HAPPY FEET Fluid Massaging insoles were designed to be worn on top of the shoe liner in your shoes, next to the foot. After checking the shoes to be sure they are free of sand, grit, etc., simply place the insoles into the shoe, flush against the heel and toe and flat against the foot bed. Since there is no right or left insole, either side of the "velvet" layers may rest against the shoe. Should the insoles "bunch up", trim the toe area a SMALL AMOUNT AT A TIME until a proper fit is achieved. A cut may be made at any point from the "fluid-glycerine zone" forward to the toe. It is critical that no cuts be made into the large fluid-glycerine area. The Glycerine fluid-gel is completely safe and non-toxic.
Can I Wear Them In All My Shoes, During Any Activity?
The insoles are perfect for use in any flat dress or casual shoes and are designed for standing, walking, and low-impact sports such as golf, bowling, low-impact aerobics, etc. Since they are easily removed, they can be interchanged in all of your shoes.
Can I Wear Them for Running?
NO! In order to work properly, the glycerine needs to move from heel to toe to heel etc. They may be worn for power walking. Running and impact sports like basketball do not allow for proper flow of the glycerine.
two month study was performed for the Postal Service at the MPA. Thirty-three (33) postal employees were enlisted to perform a clinical study in the use of dynamic insoles. (29 were employees and 4 were supervisors.) The 33 were employed in a warehouse with concrete floors. The employee's jobs required lifting and moving mail within the warehouse. Rubber mats were available in some areas for the employees to stand on while performing their assigned tasks.
The total painful conditions, as reported by the thirty-three employees at the beginning of the study, were as follows:
8 No Pain
11 Foot Pain
15 Back Pain
4 Knee Pain
1 Lower Leg Pain
1 Restless Leg Syndrome
1 Morton's Neuroma
1 Plantar Fascitis
