Impact Absorbing Insoles Help Reduce Fatigue FailureJanuary 17, 2020 Categories: Uncategorized
Runners and walkers alike know, pounding feet on pavement impacts the entire body, from the soles of the feet and up throughout the entire body. If done for a long period of time, this impact will eventually cause the legs and feet to become exhausted and the runner/walker will have to stop. This is when they have reached their point of fatigue failure. To help reduce fatigue failure, Sorbothane® Insoles have been engineered to absorb these harmful impact and vibration points, protecting the human body during extended periods of exercise.
What is Fatigue Failure?
In humans, fatigue failure happens during certain types of motion – whether it is caused by distance, speed or a combination. Pounding feet on the pavement causes an impact of solid (foot or shoe) to solid (ground), which is typically felt as vibration from the sole of the feet and up the body. This impact will eventually cause the legs and feet to become exhausted and the runner/walker will have to stop. In other words, they have reached their point of fatigue failure.
Like other materials, the human body can take only so much of these impacts without damage. Eventually, small tears or other injuries will build up and may eventually lead to a complete failure for the body in question. Reducing fatigue caused by impact and vibration is key to preventing some of these injuries.
Absorb and Dissipate Energy to Minimize Injury
Sorbothane® is a one-of-a-kind material. Exclusive to the Sorbothane line of insoles – it provides longer-lasting cushioning comfort and is a great defense against impact-related pain and injury. In short, Sorbothane® Insoles absorb the energy generated during exercise and safely dissipates it before causing fatigue failure.
This enables us to:
- Exercise/stand for longer periods of time
- Cover greater distances
- Strive for faster speeds
All without the worry of increasing the risk of serious injury to our feet or joints. This means humans can move as they are meant to without the accumulating stress causing them to tire as quickly as they normally would.
Sorbothane® Insoles are built with long-lasting materials and can be beneficial to your feet and personal health in a variety of ways. Whether you require high arch insoles or insoles for stability, there is an insole for your body and lifestyle. Find your perfect insole today!
