Feel your feet again.
Path Feel is an insole that provides vibrational feedback to the soles of people at risk of falls. It was designed for people with peripheral neuropathy, who are unable to feel the ground properly due to sensory deficit. It also serves people with general balance issues.
By amplifying the feet’s sense of touch, Path Feel enables users to identify accurately when their feet touch the ground. This reduces the sense of imbalance, as well as incidence of falls.
Smartphone-friendly & Easy to use.
Path Feel insoles come with a user-friendly app downloaded on your smartphone. The app allows you to follow your progress or send the results to your healthcare professional, providing the tools to design the best care program for you.
Studies investigating the efficacy of vibrotactile feedback on groups with sensory motor difficulties show positive feedback. Step-synchronised vibration applied to the feet of people with Parkinson's disease has been found to be effective in improving gait patterns. In a proof of concept study, a vibratory insole showed a significantly improved balance.
