Title (EN) IMPROVED SHOE INSERT
(FR) GARNITURE AMELIOREE DE CHAUSSURE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A shoe insert (26) including a bladder (38) positioned within a main body (28). The bladder includes a fluid tight membrane defining an interior chamber containing a liquid. The bladder (38) further includes a heel portion in fluid communication with a metatarsal portion. A central island (40) of solid material is bounded by the heel portion, the lateral and medial assages, and the metatarsal portion, such that the bladder is configured to move liquid contained within the interior chamber in a cycle that conforms to a natural gait cycle.
(FR)L'invention porte sur une garniture de chaussure (26) comprenant une poche (38) disposée dans un corps principal (28). Cette poche comprend une membrane étanche aux fluides définissant une chambre interne renfermant un liquide. La poche (38) comprend aussi une partie talon en communication fluidique avec une partie métatarsienne. Un îlot central (40) constitué de matériau solide est relié à la partie talon, les passages latéraux et médians et la partie métatarsienne de manière que la poche soit configurée pour faire bouger le liquide contenu dans la chambre interne selon un cycle qui correspond au cycle de la démarche naturelle.
