How it works
Equipped with tiny, clever sensors, the technology in the sole measures the temperature of the soles of your feet at all times and detects differences as low as 0.1°C. These differences can be an indicator that an inflammation is starting to develop.
As soon as the insoles detect a difference in temperature that lasts for more than 48h, you'll be notified via app.
Simply connect your insoles via bluetooth and check your data on your dashboard.
The Android app will be available as soon as our soles are launched in March 2023. The iOS app will be available a little later.
Temperature differences on your feet can have a wide variety of causes. Scientific studies have identified certain tendencies in this regard: People who experience such temperature differences in their feet may, for example, be suffering from polyneuropathy, more commonly just referred to as PNP.
Patients with polyneuropathy suffer from damage to the peripheral nervous system, i.e. the nervous system outside the spinal cord and brain.
Oftentimes, diabetes mellitus type 2 can be identified as the cause of the problem. You can learn more about it here!
Yes, positive effects could be observed when the temperature of the sole of the foot was measured regularly. In fact, first observations towards this were made in 1975 in this study by Bergtholdt and Brand.
Furthermore, the International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot (IWGDF) around Prof. Dr. Bus has already included regularly monitoring the temperature of the sole of the foot as a recommendation in its guidelines.
Since conventional milling always produces an enormous amount of waste, we use a material-saving 3D printing process. This way, we only use the amount of material necessary and your insoles already have a smaller climate footprint by design.
When testing and further developing our soles, we always use recycled material to save resources.
Waste that can’t be used for parts of new soles we try to re-use elsewhere - shredded, for example, old insoles can be recycled as playground surfacing.
We hereby explicitly inform you that our smart insoles are wellness products and do not claim to have any medical validity.
Using our insoles therefore does not exempt you from checking your feet daily/regularly or from the check-ups prescribed by your doctor.
