Pain from Prolonged Standing and Movement
Standing is a natural human position and doesn't inherently pose any particular health risk. However, regular standing work can cause foot pain, leg swelling, varicose veins, overall muscle fatigue, lower back pain, stiffness in the neck and shoulders, and other health issues. These are common complications faced by retail workers, machine operators, teachers, healthcare workers, and others whose jobs require prolonged standing.
Maintaining the body in an upright position requires considerable muscular effort. Standing decreases blood circulation in the stressed muscles. Insufficient blood flow accelerates the onset of fatigue and causes discomfort in the muscles of the legs, back, and neck (these are the muscles responsible for maintaining the upright position).
All parts of the body are interconnected. The feet form the foundation of the entire kinematic chain, which then progresses through the ankles, knees, hips, to the spine.
Experts agree that incorrect positioning of the feet causes improper alignment of the ankles, knees, hips, back, and neck. This 'domino effect' leads to an imbalance in the entire body. Muscles and tendons then try to compensate for stability, which puts a strain on them. The result is pain.
Sensory therapy with waves contained in Medicovi orthopedic insoles ensures that the surface of the foot is continuously exposed to variable loads. This results in a significant analgesic (pain-relieving) effect in musculoskeletal pain. The hydraulic distribution of pressure and its frequent changes simultaneously reduce health problems and discomfort in the front part of the foot.
How are feet related to our natural balance?
Feet move in three directions: up and down, side to side, and rotationally. Occupational footwear and insoles with a raised arch restrict this natural movement, leading to muscle and tendon laxity, increasing their susceptibility to damage and the subsequent risk of pain.
Water in the Medicovi A40 work shoe inserts acts as an additional joint. Feet in footwear can move freely without losing the body's balanced position. As a result, knee and hip joints are protected during body rotation.
The patented water wave therapy in the Medicovi A40 work shoe inserts not only has an immediate effect on maintaining proper body posture but also actively exercises the muscles and tendons of the feet. This treatment helps improve blood circulation in the legs. Better blood flow prevents the sensation of "cold feet" and the development of varicose veins. The result of the active movement of tendons and muscles, provided by Medicovi technology, is healthy feet, ankles, knees, hips, and a pain-free back.
