Everyone likes to be popular – everyone, but also a brand or a product. The pedag team knows what useful products they all produce for people of all ages ... but they had hardly expected such an overwhelming response during the Long Night of Health.
The interest in pedag's foot pressure analysis (pedagram) and individual consultation was so great that the visitors waited patiently for this event for up to an hour at peak times. With homemade muffins and fresh fruit, lively discussions and testings took place in a relaxed atmosphere and among nice people. Foot pressure zones were measured, explained and relieved with pedag foot supports.
A convincing feel-good effect
For the pedag team it was amazing: almost no visitor was aware that the placeholder insoles in their sneakers are removable and offer no anatomical function. Therefore, the guests were particularly surprised by the feel-good effect when their individual pressure points were relieved with the right foot support, simply because the anatomical shape distributes the weight pressure more evenly and reduces the load.
While foot supports can make any type of shoe more comfortable and healthier, the conscious handling of our feet (including functional gymnastics and stretching exercises) helps to prevent, relieve and therapy. Dr. Barbara Schwanitz completed the information offer in the pedag rooms with her practical instructions and exercises for self-help with foot complaints*. Thus the participants of the Long Night of Health were able to take along a wide range of inspiration for their healthy walking - and went into the warm summer night with their "newly fitted" shoes.
