Why do they work so well? iGelSoles work on a 2500-year-old principle of physics, "fluid moves to the area of least resistance and greatest need"(Archimedes). The foot has alternating high and low-pressure areas as it stands and walks. The high-pressure areas simply push the fluid to areas of low pressure and equalize the distribution.
"Custom" Fit for YOUR Feet! The dynamic movement of Liquid Glycerin provides a custom insole for the daily changes in your feet and skeletal pasture. This provides support for the foot, helping to control excessive pronation which can cause foot, heel ankle, knee, hip, and lower back pain. People who have a tendency to "overpronate" can benefit greatly from this additional foot support. People whose feet are high arched and rigid can also benefit from a full-length insole that cushions the foot and transfers impact load to the entire surface of the bottom of the foot. In a shoe or boot, iGelSoles help control the various and varied forces of " pronation" and dramatically improve fit, performance and comfort.
It's almost like walking barefoot - the Natural Way. Each foot has 26 bones, thousands of nerve endings and many muscles, tendons and ligaments. All of these need protection from traumas of standing, walking or exercise.
In a lifetime a person can walk between 150,000 to 200,000 miles and put millions of pounds of pressure on sensitive bones, nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the feet.
Out feet constantly change throughout life. By providing a shock-absorbing, resilient, dynamic liquid cushion under your feet, many of the problems associated with normal wear and tear can be prevented or alleviated.
By combining the properties of pure glycerin with sophisticated product design, you are able to get the nearest possible sensation to walking barefoot or on the soft sandy beach. This is a healthy, natural approach to foot health and comfort.
