GAIT-TECH®’s patented insole solution is adaptable to any type of shoe, fits every pair of feet, and doesn’t compromise the original heel’s beauty
Las Vegas, Nevada, January 3, 2023 – GAIT-TECH®, the company that patented its innovation for boosting the comfort of high-heel shoes, introduces its first device integrated into the insole of high heels during the manufacturing stage. The biomechanical device redistributes pressure on the ground, cushioning the impact, making high heels shoes more comfortable without compromising their design.
High heels are often a symbol of aesthetic power and carry the image of seduction and femininity, a University of Minho study found. However, the discomfort in high heels is an issue. High heels place all of the wearer’s weight on the front of the foot, placing extreme pressure on the ends of the metatarsal bones and the joints between the toes and feet, increasing the risk of stress fractures and neuromas, among other possible injuries. It is no wonder that women end up preferring flat, comfortable shoes in their daily life, despite the appeal of high-heels.
GAIT-TECH® is the first company to integrate its biomechanic solution in the insole of high heels during the production stage without compromising their design and stylistic aspects. The device received an official certificate from MD Ph.D. Roberto Bevoni from the Orthopedic Institute Rizzoli Bologna, and has earned an international patent for the innovative invention from the official Italian Office of Patents and Trademarks – Ministry for Economic Development. The device is made to improve the sustainability of human health, posture, and gait through the comfort of high heels.
The solution is based on 30 years of research and in-depth studies, to make it industrialized and is made of recycled polymer. The patented insole relieves pressure on the foot metatarsal boon in order to provide a healthier and more stable gait when the foot is verticalized in plantar flexion.
“Shoes with heels have always represented the best in terms of image, sensuality, and femininity, but at the same time, they have always been synonymous with discomfort and pain when worn for a long period of time,” says Andrea Goldoni, Co-Founder and CEO of GAIT-TECH®. “The GAIT-TECH® insole solution provides an experience of comfort and balance never felt on heels before, allowing women to wear shoes with better cushioning and less pain involved.”
GAIT-TECH® focuses on creating biomechanical innovations to improve people’s health. Its insole solution for high heels relieves pain and prevents injuries, and is the first-of-its-kind to be inserted during the production process while maintaining the shoe’s aesthetic design.
In 2021, GAITTECH Srl earned an international patent for the innovative invention from the official Italian office of the Patents & Trademarks Ministry for Economic Development.
The GAIT-TECH® team appointed Alice Carli as General Director, and Diego Dolcini as Creative Director in 2021, for their expertise in fashion. The team consists of Co-Founder and CEO Andrea Goldoni, Co-Founder and Head of Legal Marcello Benetti, Co-Founder and Global R&D Stefano Caiumi, Co-Founder and Orthopedic and Prosthesis Expert Simone Marchesini.
The company has a partnership with Solos, who guarantees its originality, traceability, and anti-counterfeiting.
