The (in)sole solution: how to protect your active workforce from injury through biomechanics

27th April 2020 | 1:00pm EST
Join five senior leaders and thought leaders on this roundtable discussion as we dedicate 90 minutes to answering one of the most valuable questions in business today...

As Leonardo da Vinci famously said, “The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.”

80% of the population has some sort of a foot related problem, foot related problems are a common cause of general musculoskeletal pain and problems. Your body’s balance begins in the feet; when the feet do not provide proper support, it can raise your risk for joint problems caused by poor posture and unnatural gait. Individuals with foot related problems could be more likely to experience injury or pain in the feet, ankles, knees, or hips.

It all comes down to our lower kinetic chain alignment, and as the first point of contact with every step we take, how our feet interact with the ground affects our entire lower kinetic chain. The main purpose of our musculoskeletal system is to keep our bodies upright, balanced and moving to the best of our abilities. When our body is out of alignment our musculoskeletal system has to work harder to counter act the misalignments, putting abnormal force and stresses on our muscles, joints, tendons and musculoskeletal system.

For any company whose employee’s stand or need to walk around, taking steps to reduce fatigue and improve ability are vital.

So, how can we better protect employees, mitigate trips and falls and drive efficiency in the workplace?

The answer can be found in our patented alignment contoured insole that’s designed for the body. When focused on solving the cause and not the symptom of misalignment, can enable the biomechanics of the body to protect itself and be more efficient.

Join Protalus and a group of health and safety industry thought leaders for this virtual roundtable to hear about their innovative, alignment corrective insole solution, and to discuss how to improve the ability, stability and range of motion of your workforce while protecting them from injury.
