There are three main elements of the body that send information to the CNS, they are joints, skin and muscles/tendons. Collectively they are otherwise called Mechanoreceptors.
When all three are firing properly and able to send accurate and precise information about pressure, joint orientation, rate of movement and range of movement about the joint the body works with greater synergy.
The founder of Profeet, researched propriocetion in detail and noted that the stability of the body is best with bare feet, worst with the shoes and closer to normal with a custom moulded insole, (inserted into the shoe), using windlass biomechanics.
Our conclusion is that the most important aspect of any device added to the foot should be primarily to facilitate the function of these receptors and allow the body/foot to discover its optimum path of tracking while in contact with the ground.
