Standing for long periods of time is part of the job for many municipal employees, especially those who work in street and highway department positions.
By reducing the impact on the foot by the ground, AirFeet insoles offer a solution to a common workplace problem: pain caused by working in a standing position for too long.
Pain and productivity cannot coexist, and anyone on their feet for more than a few hours a day knows it. Medical studies have confirmed the fact — there is a direct relationship between the time workers spend on their feet and their ability to focus on the job. Once the pain sets in, distraction and fatigue is quick to follow. Productivity then comes to a halt.
While the easiest way to avoid foot pain is to stay seated, a standing position is a more versatile position and often results in more efficiency in performing tasks. But when more than half of a full work shift is spent in a standing position, occupational injuries are more likely to occur.
AirFeet insoles allow workers to take advantage of the efficiency and mobility of standing while avoiding the pain it causes. By reducing the impact of the ground on the foot by up to 80 percent, the insoles can eliminate the fatigue and exhaustion caused by foot pain. Users claim that they also diminish back problems and heel and ankle pain.
A university study aimed at disseminating information on the health effects and appropriate control measures associated with performing jobs in prolonged standings supports the use of orthopedic insoles.
“Proper design of clothing for prolonged standing jobs has shown positive impacts,” the study found. AirFeet testimonials show that insole customers have come to the same conclusion.
Athletes, firefighters and military members have all sworn by AirFeet insoles. Reviews have even called the product a cheaper and more effective measure than orthopedic doctor appointments.
According to the study, reducing the level of discomfort starts at the contact point — the feet. If measures are taken to reduce impact or to increase comfort at foot level, managers can run a more efficient workplace.
When pain is eliminated or managed, absenteeism and works compensation claims decrease. In turn, workers can enjoy a safer work environment and managers can expect higher quality production.
AirFeet and its loyal customers are confident that the patent-pending design — known as Active Flow Media Technology — is the key to eliminating pain caused by upright working conditions. The engineered design, used exclusively in all AirFeet insoles, allows the Active Flow Media to flow rapidly and accurately to areas requiring support and comfort, providing the perfect combination of curves, bumps and channels.
