Proprioception

Proprioception is another element of biomechanics that we strongly believe needs to be fully examined and explored. We have been investigating proprioception since 1996 and it has been our firm belief that footwear is the main cause of most types of ankle injuries, if not the trigger. Recent studies have confirmed this by showing a direct link using custom-made one-axis rotating platforms and most recently three-axis rotating platforms part of a completed PhD project which complimented and confirmed the original findings.
