The human foot is made up of 26 bones, with the heel or calcaneus being the largest. The heel is designed to provide a rigid support for the weight of the body. While walking or running the heel absorbs the impact of the foot when it hits the ground and springs you forward into your next stride.
Experts note that the stress placed on the foot may be 1.25 times your body weight when walking and approx. 2.75 times when running. Consequently, the heel is vulnerable to damage and pain from repeated use. Heel pain is the most common foot problem and affects over 2 million people every year.
In majority of cases heel pain has a mechanical cause and gradually worsens with no real injury to the affected area. It is usually not brought on by a single injury such as a twist or fall, but rather the result of repetitive stress, shock and impact to the heel.
Therefore, GEEL SOCKS by boo-g ™ is a welcomed need filling product for those who suffer from foot and heel discomfort, pain and/or sensitivity. While foot ailments such as planters fasciitis, heel spurs and Achilles Tendonitis, are some of the most common and painful, over approx. 80% of all adults will suffer from some sort of foot pain or ailment within their lifetime. These ailments will prevent over 72% of people from doing the things they love including, exercising, running, hiking or going for long walks, working, traveling or even playing with the kids or grand-kids just to name a few.
