Factory workers and doctors alike tend to develop painful foot conditions, such as bunions or hammer toe, as a result of standing on their feet all day. An article in Assembly Magazine reports on a new invention that may help plant employees keep foot pain at bay – though docs may want to stick with Crocs.
According to the news source, motorized footwear called spinKiX may help prevent foot conditions in workers who find themselves trekking back and forth an expansive factory for 40 hours a week.
The product is essentially a pair of skates that wearers can control with a remote device, reaching up to 10 miles per hour.
“The miniaturization of certain technologies found in smart phones, laptops and radio-controlled cars has finally made it possible for us to integrate them all into a pair of shoes,” said Peter Treadway, a spokesperson for the product’s manufacturer.
The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety reports that employees who stand for long periods of time should take breaks to walk and rest in order to alleviate leg and foot pain.
