Value Proposition: Recently 53% of people surveyed by the American Podiatric Medical Association reported daily foot pain so severe it interfered with daily life. When asked what can be done to improve their conditions U.S. soldiers requested better footwear to ease their foot pain.
In the U.S. 50% of women wear heels yet 71% of women complain of pain due to heels. There is no doubt this is a literal pain point to solve to improve productivity of American workers and soldiers. Our technology provides comfort, stability and dynamic support in the thinnest, lightest, strongest form factor. We can decrease weight in heavy work boots or enhance beauty in high heels. We are to insoles what Vibram is to outsoles. Our AWT technology is ready to be used as an OEM for shoe manufacturers of all types of shoes. Our AWT system is easy to be implemented in the manufacturing process using all existing equipment and tooling.
