A unique high-tech solution, the Sting-Free inSOUL composite, has been developed to be used as a shoe insert to help with the heel pain of Plantar Fasciitis.
It is estimated that over two million people are afflicted with Plantar Fasciitis.
Developed by two Medical doctors, the Sting-Free inSOUL provides greater damping of the impact shock and vibration of standing, walking and running. Composed of three layers, the first is a space age GE elastomer especially calibrated to absorb the maximum amount of harmful impact shock, the second layer uses Dupont's aramid fibre, the same fibre used in bullet-proof vests, the third layer is a GE elastomer contoured for the ultimate comfort of the wearer.
The Sting Free inSOUL has an Integrated Arch Support with variable thickness that can provide even greater shock absorption. Each inSOUL is custom fitted, cutting to size is not required. The three-layer composite is claimed to retain its shape, as opposed to previous products that flatten and wear out.
Sting-Free, an anti-vibration technology company, develops, manufactures, licenses, and markets shoe inserts to consumers, the sports equipment and footwear industry. Sting-Free has several patents pending which should corner the market on absorption technology. The Company is launching an Infomercial, and currently negotiating licenses with market leaders in the sports equipment and footwear industry.
Scigrip has expanded its agreement with Biesterfeld Spezialchemie to include France and the French territories in Northern Africa, with immediate effect.
The next Marine-i Discovery Room event will shine a spotlight on composite materials and the vital role they will play in the marine industry in future.
R-TECH Materials is celebrating its tenth year of testing composites for the marine industry.
