Designing for our feet

Healthy feet are vital for mobility and in a lifetime, the average person walls approximately 160,000 km.  Almost a third of GP consultations for musculoskeletal problems relate to pain in the foot and ankle. Healthcare professionals have recognised the importance of keeping our feet in good working order but there is so much more that can be done to support this. 

Prevention is better than cure.  In the design of a building, the floor covering is probably one of the elements that most often get overlooked and not afforded the right level of consideration.  A floor can be so much more than just a floor and can go a long way in helping to alleviate pain and discomfort.
