Features & Benefits Men's
CUSHION - AquaStep provides a cushion to the entire bottom of the foot. As we age, we begin to lose the normal fat pads on the bottom of our feet. When this occurs, the bones of the feet come closer to the skin and become irritated. At this point your body creates calluses as an attempt to protect the bones of your feet. AquaStep provides replacement padding for the eroded fat pads, thereby relieving the pressure on the bones and reducing hard calluses. AquaStep can also help considerably in the reduction of pain due to heel spurs, neuromas, plantar fasciitis, and pain suffered by individuals that spend long hours standing and/or walking on hard surfaces.
MASSAGE - AquaStep offers a constant massage to the feet. With each step, the glycerin gel first cushions the heel strike, then is moved forward to cushion the ball of the foot, thereby creating a wonderful cushioning and soothing massage action throughout the gait cycle. This is much appreciated by marathon runners! This massage action serves to stimulate better circulation which enhances the health of the soft tissues and can help maintain better fat pad cushioning. This, in addition to the stimulation of the nerve endings, is very beneficial for diabetics. There is a technique practiced by many massage therapists called ‘Reflexology’, which is believed to affect nerve areas that correspond and relate to different organs in the body. The AquaStep effectively massage these areas as well. The glycerin gel is of a dense consistency, which makes it slower in movement than many other liquids. The slower movement creates a deeper massage action and therefore is very therapeutic.
ABSORBS SHOCK - AquaStep can dramatically reduce shock on the lower skeletal system. Since you cannot “compress” a fluid, it is an excellent shock absorber. The glycerin gel actually “floats the foot”, therefore the shock is absorbed by the insole and not the ankles, knees, hips and lower back.
FATIGUE REDUCTION - People working on hard surfaces often experience enormous fatigue at the end of long work days. By reducing weight bearing shock to the joints of the feet, ankles, knees, hips and low back, there’s less stress to these areas with every step, all day long. And, the massage effect enhances circulation which can result in better oxygen & nutrient delivery to the feet thereby increasing energy flow to those areas.
EVEN DISTRIBUTION OF WEIGHT - It is a known fact that liquid seeks its own level. The gel in the AquaStep will therefore float the foot, allowing for a more even distribution of weight which is an asset with regard to posture.
“BURNING FEET” AND EXCESS PERSPIRATION - The patented cambrelle covering of the AquaStep absorbs moisture and odor which keeps the foot dryer and reduces the potential for painful problems like blisters and athletes foot.
