    Re wearing "Medic Shoes" while lying down or in bed; gentlemen always do, and others always should, remove their footwear in bed.

    This is based on Acupressure and Reflexology, which I thought was not clinically proven to work in the Chiropody/Podiatric field, so how come these shoes are medically proven on those factors?

    Taken from their press release...

    "The device is a non-medical intervention that alleviates the symptoms of poor peripheral circulation and neuropathy, ..."

    Of course!:
    Reflexology is not an effective treatment for any medical condition

    The whole basis of the claims of how it works is based on snake oil.

    So they have a statistical correlation with improvement. To sell them they have to come up with a reason for efficacy that they public will recognize. A neurologically more plausible explanation might be that the vibration wakes up nerve endings that would moderate the noxious messages that have been dominating.

    Hi all,

    Are there any updates on the Medic Shoes? Do they work?

    I really can't believe that a Medic Shoe can relieve peripheral neuropathy of a Diabetic.

    I don't think there are any studies that tested the efficiency of reflexology on the peripheral neuropathy?

    Thank you for your latest opinions! The last reply was in 2013, and apparently those shoes are great sellers in the US?

    Thank you very much for your comments
