PEEL and STICK: Balance Buttons
The Balance Buttons are here!
These unique pads are designed to prevent falls and improve balance by producing site-specific stimulation of cutaneous receptors located along the outer sides of your feet.
Recent research shows that this precise location is loaded with different types of cutaneous receptors, all of which play a key role in maintaining balance. The outer placement also makes them important in preventing lateral falls, which are far and away the most likely to result in injury.
Although originally designed to prevent falls in the elderly, Balance Buttons are also helpful when managing ankle sprains, as this common injury frequently results in impaired balance. Whether you’re using them for fall prevention or the management of an injury, just place the balance buttons on the outer side of your insole and you are all set!
