The GaitLine technology is based on the latest scientific understanding of two important elements coming together to secure proper posture and balance during standing and walking.
Correct balance on the foot while standing and walking stimulates a dynamic dialogue between the medial and lateral muscle structures in a "cross-grip" under the mid foot area and strengthens and stabilizes the foot arch. Optimal dynamic response patterns between medial and lateral structures prevent ankle sprains and lots of knee problems and are the prerequisite for stability and balance during transfer of weight from one foot to another in our daily activities.
The Sensory Gait Line® (SGL) is an expression of a balanced medio-lateral centre of pressure (CoP) through the structures of the foot, from the moment of heel-impact to toe push off. The SGL places the load through solid bones and strong connective tissues, where the foot is solidly constructed, balancing the response patterns between the medial and lateral structures of the foot.
The SGL® is been the normative tracing of CoP for professional dancers and top athletes. Therefore it is also the optimal load path through the foot for all people.
The SGL® movement path occurs as a result of sensory and mechanic inputs to the foot. The SGL-technology® of the GaitLine shoe is therefore constructed to inspire and strengthen the foot-system by stimulating the sensory balance receptors of the foot, maintaining a healthy and responsive system.
