    A gal came into my store and bought a pair of sandals. She claims she wear sandals year-round due to excessive sweat - which I've heard before lots of times. No big deal. Then she proceeded to tell me that her DP informed her it was a form of "foot asthma."


    Foot asthma? Seriously? :confused:

    I suspect she go her wires crossed. Never heard of any explanation of that sort of problem coming close to being called "foot asthma".
     
  3. Although I know at Least one type of insole which cures regular asthma ;-)

    Maybe it's because her feet can't "breathe" properly?!

    Postural control insoles

    Posture Control Insoles® deploy a forefoot technology (Medial Column Technology®) that provides sensory feedback to the first metatarsal and big toe. The remainder of the insole is flat and ultra thin to fit in any shoe. It is so thin it can be slipped underneath the sock-liner of an athletic shoe. 100% natural motion leads to 100% comfort.

    Cures Many problems caused by bad posture including reduced lung volume.

    Check out the case studies for proof http://www.correctposture.com.au/case_studies.html
     
  8. If you are interested in using PCI's you will, of course, have to do the training. The foundation level is the Introductory Seminar, Available on DVD here. Its 375 euros (shipping and handling included.) That won't qualify you to use the devices of course, its just an introduction. To actually use them you'd have to do the level 1 certification. That qualifies you to use the devices on the most basic cases. You'd have to contact Prof Rothbart on the address on the website for a price on that 6 day course.

    The Insoles, BTW, come with the medial column technology wedge in two types per size, 3mm and 6mm.

    Unless you're in the UK in which case the distributor flogs them off by mail order at £55 a pop.:D

    I believe Ian G spoke to someone at last years conference who explained to him how the training works. He'd know more than me.
